    Clock on taskbar missing ':'


    Hello, I fired up the pc yesterday and noticed that the clock on the taskbar is now displaying a square o instead of a colon.

    Anyone have an idea on how to get the colon back on the clock? (screenshot attached)Click image for larger version.

    There is a thread in this forum which has an answer :
    Win 10 Pro Creators update taskbar clock anomaly - any suggestions?

    The answer was given by threevolve, post #9.
    3 other members in the same thread had confirmed that the solution worked.
