As soon as one switches to small taskbar buttons, the width of the taskbar is reduced and the Date is no longer visible and thus remains hidden from full view.
This works even if you have changed the taskbar location from the horizontal position to a vertical position.
If you would like to make it visible again, simply turn off the same Use small taskbar buttons option.
Once done, you may want to make sure that ‘Lock all taskbars’ option is checked.
