    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
