I have both the time on the taskbar and one from gadgets, they are all synchd.

Since ClockX runs on Windows time and is synched to a time server, I can't see any point in having the taskbar clock, especially since it is digital and I prefer analog. With my eyesight, it is much easier to read a fair size analog clock than to squint at the taskbar. A couple of other things that I like about ClockX is that it has a second hand, which I find handy at times, and I have it set to become transparent when mousing over it, in case it blocks something that I need to see. I also have a digital clock on Opera that I sometimes use. But the majority of the time, I use my wallcock, because it is 24" in diameter, and sits above my computer station, and I keep it set manually via the computer's time.

One last comment - I changed the date format as suggested. I changed it from 12/29/2009 to 12/29/09. This enabled me to resize the taskbar back to its normal width. Cool.

Date disappeared all of a sudden...?!?!?

Woke up today, turned on the computer and no date!
Time is still there. I went into the setting and the short and long dates are of the style I desire, it just wont show up!
I have grown accustom to the date being there and I would like to figure out how to get it back!?

Thanks for any and all help!
