In this post we will see how to add the day of the week, that is, Monday, Tuesday, etc to the system tray clock in the Taskbar Notification area in Windows 11/10/8/7.
Add a day of the week to the taskbar in Windows 11/10
- Search for and open Control Panel and then, select Region settings.
- Now, from the ‘Region’ window that appears on your computer screen, select ‘Additional Settings’ button.
- Next, from the ‘Customize Format’ window, choose the ‘Date’ tab.
- Under Short date add ddd in the beginning. That is, make the Short date as ddd-dd-MM-yy. In this case, only 3 alphabets will be displayed. viz. Mon.
- If you prefer the full day displayed viz Monday, then use dddd-dd-MM-yy. Using a comma instead of the hyphen will make a comma display. Try and see if ddd, dd-MM-yy suits you. Put the day after the date by using dd-MM-yy, ddd if you wish.
Incidentally, if you wish, you can display seconds in Windows Taskbar Clock too.
Play around and see what suits you the best. Click Apply > OK and exit.
You will now see the day of the week to display in the taskbar.
I hope you find this small tip useful.
