Taskbar Time / Date area quit expanding to fit desired date format

Q: Taskbar Time / Date area quit expanding to fit desired date format

Greetings, and thanks in advance for your help..

Awhile back I formatted my Windows 10 PCs to show ddd dd-mmm-yyyy on my taskbar clock. This worked happily on my desktop and laptop for months, maybe even a year +

Now (probably starting in the past couple days, if not today), on one of those two PC's, this format will no longer display. It is Okay on the other PC.
What has changed that the taskbar clock space used to expand to fit the "short date" format, but now it will no longer expand - and instead just refuses to display the date at all. (NOTE: I've verified the issue by testing shorter formats -- short formats, like "ddd" show up correctly. Only if you request a longer format will the date not display - evidently because it is too long for the clock area. )

Additional Notes that may help:

* "Working" pc is running build 10586 PC with too small a clock space that won't expand -- Build 14393

*Other differences: Notification/Action center Icon is left of clock on the working PC - Right of clock on the non-working
Right- Clicking on task bar gives "properties" option on working PC -- But "Settings" option on the non-working

( I don't want to prejudice responses - but clearly the implication to me is that some recent OS update is most likely the culprit.)

Thank You

On my XPS 15 (L502X) I'd like to widen the day and date area so that the day and date fit on one line. For instance, for today, I'd like it to display "Friday/09/16/2016." I have made this change in settings, and when I hover the mouse over that area, the display is correct. But because the display area isn't wide enough, it otherwise shows only the time. This works fine on my desktop PC--plenty of room there. I don't want to increase the taskbar height. I want only to widen the day/time/date area to accommodate the day and date on one line. So how do I widen the day and date area on my laptop? Thanks.

Hi! Does anyone know what is the format of the date in the field "(battery) Manufacture Date" informed by Lenovo Vantage (Hardware Configuration > Energy)? It seems not to follow Windows setting. In my case, it is set to Brazilian Portuguese DD/MM/YYYY, but there is not a leading "0" in the returned value (see attached image). Does it really disregard the Windows setting and presents it in a fixed format (maybe American English)? When was my battery manufactured (Oct. 07 or July 10)?Thanks in advance.

Hi all,

I'm new to Windows 7 (Home Premium 32-bit) and I just can't figure out what's going on here! Basically I want my short date format to be dd/mm/yyyy (UK format) e.g. 05/11/2010, but when I key a date into Excel 2002 it is appearing as 05 11 2010. In Control
Panel I have the short date format set to ddd dd/MM/yyyy and the example is shown as Fri 05/11/2010, but in Excel all the date formats are shown with space separators, e.g. 14 03 2001! I don't think it's an Excel problem though as in Windows Task Scheduler
the dates are shown with spaces there e.g. '19:25 on Mon 01 11 2010'. The date by the clock though is shown correctly with slash separators!

I know in Windows XP you can select the date separator from a drop-down list, but this option seems to be absent in Windows 7. Under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\International in the registry, sDate was set to a space, but changing that to a slash (and rebooting)
didn't fix the problem.

Does anyone have any ideas please what's wrong and how to fix it?

Thanks
Steven

A:Date format using space as date separator rather than forward slash!

Hi Steven,
 
Thanks for the post!
 
When you set the Short date to ddd dd/MM/yyyy, the date by the clock is shown with slash, however, the date in Task Scheduler doesn’t show the slash. This behavior
is by design. When you double click the time and the trigger tab (for example) in task scheduler, the details are shown with slash.
 
When you change the Short date to dd/MM/yy, the date in the Task Scheduler and the clock become the same.
 
For the Excel date problems, I recommend you ask this question in
Office Forum.
 
The reason why we recommend posting appropriately is you will get the most qualified pool of respondents, and
other communities who read the forums regularly can either share their knowledge or learn from your interaction with us. 

 
Thanks for your understanding and cooperation!

Hi,

The option you're after is controlled from within Excel. If you right-click the cell(s) in question you can select 'format cells' and under 'Date' you can select the desired format.

Hello all

i would like to have Date+Time displayed in the taskbar (i know that i can use large font,resize taskbar etc etc and dont want to use those solutions or any other 3rd party app just to be clear)

On my windows 7 i could achieve this by using Windows Styles builder then open the relevant theme end edit the required resource (namely Clock Font from size 11 i think, down to 9 or 8) and thus i could see both the time and the date without using large fonts or resizing the taskbar.

Tried the same method with windows 10 Pro X64 A.U this method appears not to work anymore.

Why don't you take a look at some of the many 3rd party date/time apps that are available?

Also, some of your system's font size settings are directly affecting the font size of your date and time display.

Click on Advanced, and in the drop-down menu, select the item that controls the location where you wish to change the font size. (Note: the last one, Window, does not have an option to control font size.)

Welcome to SevenForums.

Let Win 7 open your .evtx files. The default is Event Viewer.

The average user will be using Event Viewer to view the event logs.

True, with a healthy work in time, you can learn to use PowerShell to extract and parse event logs.

I use a powershell script to clear all of my event logs - not for the space savings but to make the job of separating the wheat from the chaff easier.

If you would like the date in the System Tray along with the time, right-click on the Taskbar (ensure that Lock the Taskbar is deselected) then drag the top edge of the Taskbar upward until it snaps to twice its normal height. The clock displays three lines rather than one, showing the current time, the day of the week, and the current date.

I also tried editing the Date Format to:

I run a query for a quarterly report that has 8 fields, 2 of which are dates. The dates have to be in the mm/dd/yyyy format. When I run the query everything displays correctly. when I save the data to a table everything displays correctly. However, when I export it to a comma delimited txt file, the time also displays: mm/dd/yyyy 00:00:00. I checked the formatting for the 2 date fields, and they are both the 'Short Date' format with an Input Mask of 99/99/9999;0;" ". I also tried using other placeholders, which didn't work.

I can get rid of the 00:00:00 if I export it as a tab deliminated file, but then I lose the commas, which are a requirement. The report has to be a .txt file, with strings wrapped in quotation marks, dates (no time) in the mm/dd/yyyy format, and fields separated by commas with no spaces in between.

Are there any other places I should try to change the format, or tricks to make sure the date and only the date print? Or is it an Access glitch and I need to do a re-install? Thanks for any help.

Hi guys, I've been having this problem for a few days now. It isn't major in itself but after some research of what the cause might be, although I'm skeptical of it, I'm wary of what no action may lead to in the long run.

Problem
My taskbar date & time is acting up. The time is cycling around in the same hour, that hour being whatever hour I last set it to in an attempt to set it on course again (now it is 11pm). To be clear it doesn't advance onto the next hour once it reaches it, it just cycles back to the beginning of what it was before. Because of this the date is not advancing either.

Possible Cause
After doing some research I've seen a lot of people suggest that the CMOS battery may be dying. Due to the volume of people suggesting this I would have reason to believe this is the case.

Skepticism of Possible Cause
However, I've just recently built myself a new PC (the one I'm having this issue with). Everything was sound during the build and everything ran smoothly when I turned it on. I bought a completely new motherboard (Asus Maximus VI Hero - hell of a name), so I find it hard to believe the battery is already dying.

Hello Windows 8 Forum Communities,

I appologize if there is already a thread with this information. I searched for one first, but got frustrated when I couldn't find one with in 10-15 minutes (maybe I'm searching wrong). Either way, the other day I accidentally removed the date and time from the bottom right hand corner of the Windows 8 taskbar. I did this when i was trying to set the time from the Windows defaulted US Pacific Time to US Eastern Standard Time. I can not figure out how to get it back on the taskbar. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Also if anyone knows why my Java location on my computer is saying that it is "corrupted". I think it is related to Windows 8 upgrade.

Again apologies if there are already established links for this content. I simply couldn't find them.

The coin cell battery on the motherboard that keeps time while the system is powered off is probably dead.  Not too surprising given that the D600 is about 15 years old at this point.  If you open the system up, it should be easy to find, so just note the type of battery, e.g. CR2032, and then buy that type of battery at any grocery/convenience store.  Should only be about $2-3.

Help! I am using a Seagate Central 4TB NAS drive attached to my router via Ethernet. It has been working fine so far for all kinds of file activities. But whenever I modify a file in one of its folders, the creation date for the file also updates and is
changed to the same time as the new modified date.
Maybe relevant details:
I can move/copy folders to the drive and they maintain their created dates.
It happens for both a private user share on the NAS and for the Public share on it.
It happens for at least image files and text files.
I am able to edit files across two computers on the network just fine, the create date stays the same.
This happens from a new Windows 10 machine and Vista machine both.
I notice sometimes the date created seems to stay same until I access the file the next time.
I can't update the NAS firmware because of error.

If it could be a permissions problem, I have been unable to change it from:
Everyone: Special Permissions only
nobody (Unix Group\nobody): Special Permissions only
nogroup (Unix Group\nogroup): Special Permissions only
(Those were there automatically, they are not something I manually put there. I get "Access is denied" whenever try to add permissions or change ownership.)

I have Googled many phrases of this problem far and wide and come up with nothing. I really need to save the original create date because that's how I sort them in programs like Windows Photo Gallery or Picasa. Does anyone know what's goin... Read more

First the background: We are gradually deploying Office 2007, but not everyone in the agency has it. I have both 2003 and 2007 installed on my system, but I do my work in 2003, and none of our databases have actually been converted to 2007 format (at least, none that I work with). There are occasionally people who use 2007 when viewing databases, but I don't know if any of the people who are working in this particular database are using 2007. The problem is reproducible in 2003 and so I've been trying to fix it here. The query behind the problem report used to work. It has been a problem for several months (it is run monthly, and every month for the past five they've had problems with it) and I've finally gotten to the root of the actual issue.

The purpose of the report is to generate invoice for outstanding loans. The DateNextPayment is a calculated field based on the payment plan for the loan. It is calculated using a function in the query named qryGetSitesDDInvoices1. This is the function that is called (I did not write this function, I'm supporting this db long after the original writer has left):
Code:
Function DateNextPayment(PaymentSchedule As String, DateFirstPayment As Date, Balance As Currency)

On Error GoTo Handle_err

Dim Date1 As Date
Dim Date2 As Date
Dim Date3 As Date
Dim NextQtrDate As Date

'The code adds one month to datenextpayment at start of each month. Or yearly or weekly

The title is self-explanatory. So far, I found a software that is able to change this called 'Attribute Changer' but it only changes the date modified in the folder and, when you go into the actual word application > file > info, the date created and modified are not changed. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

Hello.
I'd like to see Long Date and Long Time in my System Tray instead of Short Date and Short Time. 
But due to some restrictions connected with my work I can not modify Short Date & Short Time to look how I want them to look in System Tray.
So basically I need Windows to show what is set as Long Date & Long Time in System Tray instead of showing Short ones.

Is it possible? Maybe some registry tweaks?

Hey guys,
I have a question about coding and setting an excel file to send emails. I am using an excel file to track maintenance work orders and I would like to get an email each day for each work order that is requested to be finished on that days date. I have attached the excel file I am using, and the column that is important is C, "Date Needed" - If that date is today's date, the cell turns red and I would also like to get email notification about it. A separate email for each cell that matches today's date.

Also, if possible, I would like for it to look at all the sheets, not just the current month's sheet. For example, if a work order was filed in July but wasn't needed until September, I would still like to get the email reminding me that it needs to be finished on xx date in September.

I have attached the excel file I want to use.

I have searched all over this forum and others and have found many posts similar to this, but I am not a great manipulator of code, so I cannot get any of the other solutions to work.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

Searching for files modified in a specified date range (of the past 3 days) gets a search result list titled "date modified", and with the column heading "Date Modified" but the date listed against a file modified today is wrong. The date displayed matches the file creation date & is within the specified range ... but how do I know what the Search is doing?

Can't trust it... !

That is very strange. Bump for a possible solution, since I can't think of one off the top of my head.

On my laptop I'd like to widen the day and date area so that the day and date fit on one line. For instance, for today, I'd like it to display "Thursday/09/15/2016." I have made this change in settings, and when I hover the mouse over that area, the display is correct. But because the display area is too small, it otherwise shows only the time. This works fine on my desktop PC--plenty of room there (see illustrations for comparison). So how do I widen the day and date area on my laptop? Or would shrinking the font size there let them fit, and how do I do that? Thanks.

I'm working on a spreadsheet that lists monthly recurring expenses. I have one cell on the sheet listing the current date (using the "=Now()" formula), but I'd like to have the other cells change at certain times throughout the month.

For example, if one cell currently says "April-15", when the actual date reads "April-16", the respective cell would change to "June-15". This way, whenever the spreadsheet is viewed the next recurring payment date will be seen.

I know this is the wrong tool for something like this - I'm using SharePoint at the office with a calendar list with workflows that shoot off emails in a much better put together format - but this is just for home use and I'd like to keep it all in one document if possible.

Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
 

A:Excel 2010: Cell Date Change with Current Date

The way I read it was that you have fixed recurring payment dates, so you just want to know the next date based on the day today. Hope the attached might assist.
You need to list the payment dates somewhere and then the formula looks up the next date. You might want to look up today plus 1 (or something) to reflect the fact that if the next payment date is today, there's a good chance you'll not get any unplanned payments on that run.
