My clock no longer shows the date

  ethelene 13:42 24 Mar 2005

Not an earth shattering problem, I know.

But when I hover my mouse over the clock the date no longer appears.

I rely on this, so please help!

I'm not techie - so baby steps and plain English please.

Windows XP Home, in case this is relevant.

Thanks in advance.

If you know when the problem started to occur, try a System Restore to before that time

Thanks I'll try that.

Nope didn't work.

Try Tclockx : click here

date, time, day, calender, etc all from the same area!

I presumed you've double clicked on the time and checked the Settings panel?

This is the reverse of what you require:


Key: Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer

Name: HideClock


Value: 1 Hide

Or go to click here and scroll down to number 320 and then download the right hand panel link:

"Clock: Day/Month/Date/Year/Time"

Note the instructions at the top of the page re downloading and saving the Regedit.

I mentioned the "reverse of what you require" in case this might, for some unknown reason, been inadvertently done...

Nice one, just dowloaded it. I have a similar problem on one machine, often the date gets itself behind the taskbar, no idea why, but this will cure it. Thanks.

Nice to have helped!

Thanks stuart - that sorted it!

I am a daft old bat and I need a reliable source to tell me the day of the week!

Many thanks.

I am just so grateful this site exists.
