    Small icons, but date still showing on taskbar

    I don't want the date showing on my taskbar, so I put the icon size to small so only the time would show, but it's still showing the date as well. How do I get rid of it? Obviously there's a glitch somewhere, but I don't know where to begin.

    Only time shows for me if I "Use small taskbar buttons". Are you using a third party theming program of custom menu program?

    Nope. Just setting up this computer and not liking the hoops I have to jump through, the little glitches like this one.

    Hi, I understand your frustration on setting up machines; it's tedious.

    But just to double check, you have the setting in the green box set exactly like it is in the attached image? If so, can you double click on the Date and take a screen shot of your monitor and post it back here?

    Interesting. Though when I right clicked on the taskbar and selected "small icons"--and the icons became small, "small icons" was not turned on in Settings. Once I did that, all was well. Thank you for the heads up. I really don't like Windows 10, and this is one of the reasons why. Nothing is straightforward. I have more questions coming, but I'll save them for another thread.

    Thank you again, papanee.

    You're welcome Rosa.

    And yea, sometimes certain settings are hidden all the way somewhere out there. I totally understand how you experience strange & weird things like this.

    There is no "show small icons" in my taskbar right click menu? I just assumed you did it via "Taskbar Settings" link in that same right click menu.

    Right click on task bar, select "View". Quick and easy, but apparently not efficient, as it does only half the job.

    There is no 'View' for a right click on the taskbar, but there is if you right-click on the desktop. You're not clicking in the right place, by the sounds of it...

    'Small icons' here refers to the desktop icons.
