    Long Date Not showing in Taskbar


    I have the long date format set in the taskbar (dddd dd MMMM yyyy) and it works every day except for Wednesday. On that day the only thing that is shown is the time.
    Tried using short month ie Sep but nothing seems to work. No big deal but, just wondering if anyone else has come across this. Latest build Win 10 pro 15063.632.

    Odd, I'll have to wait until Wednesday to see. Does it do the same with dddd, d MMMM yyyy?

    Where are you changing this? I'm using Settings>Time & language> Date & time>Change date and time formats. There's no MMM available there.

    Using the setting you have described in settings Language - Date and time number format - Additional settings - Date - and using the short date the same as the long _ dddd dd MMMM yyyyClick image for larger version.

    Ah, I see what you're doing now. You are actually changing the short date format to be the same as the long date format. That's not possible through the Settings app - perhaps for good reason :)

    You could try a single 'd' for the numeric day bit. That supresses the leading zero, but still shows double-digit dates. You may see 'Wednesdays' for the early part of the month, at least.

    I've tried the d, makes no difference and it doesn't make any difference if it's the beginning , or end of the month, Wednesday is a no show.

    Wednesday is the only week day that has 9 characters, so whether it's the spacing available on the taskbar, I know not.

    Today I just noticed this issue on my PC as well, Wednesday's date will not show. The other days of the week will display as it should, time and date (I use short day/date). You can quickly test it by just changing your date to any other day of the week. I'm on Version 1703, build 15063.540, Windows 10 64-bit. What a really weird (and annoying) bug.

    Format it like "dddd, dd MM yyyy" and it won't show.
    If I put formatting like "dddd, dd MMMM yyyy" (long month format) and it shows.

    Weird, but that's it.

    It's there for me too now. You sure you did 'nothing'? After all, yesterday was 'Patch Tuesday' - did you get an update by any chance?
