Task bar clock gone AWOL

  jack 10:18 10 May 2005

This has been the case for some time, but I have not thought to wonder why - too busy on other tasks
So when I went to Control P/Time and opened to check I found the the tick box for task bar clock option is greyed out.

So far I have not found way to re-activate it.

Any ideas please

You do need to be logged in with Administrator rights then do the following:

Go to Start, Run and type mmc This will start the Microsoft Management Console. On the Top Menu click on File, Add/Remove Snap-in. Click the "Add" button. Scroll down and double-click "Group Policy Object Editor", then click the "Finished" button. Click the "Close" button then the "OK" button in the Add/Remove Snap-in dialogue.

Expand the tree by clicking the plus signs to the left of Local Computer Policy, User Configuration, Administrator Templates and then click on "Start Menu and Taskbar" Scroll down the list on the right until you find "Remove clock from the system notification area". Double-click on it and set it to Disabled. Close down Microsoft Management Console. There is no need to save.

Thank you for pointing me in the right direction.
However having had several pokes ,nothing yet has happend- it is not a matter of great consequence but a useful learning experience - so will keep poking
obviously one has to find the right spot -as the actress said to the bishop.

Well there you go, as I posted my last and took another look would you believe it the box - no longer greyed out -clicked it and there was the time
Thank you once more
