    Just wondering if there's a simple tweak to have Win7
    show both the time and the date in the systray.

    In XP I had a small program that did it, but of
    course it won't work in Win7.

    You only get that display if you clear the 'Use Small Icons' option in Tasbar Options dialog.

    If you expand the height of the Taskbar, then it displays Time/Day/Date.

    Hey GB -
    You may be interested in another clock feature of Win7. I like to surf the live video cameras around the world and of course you need day light to see anything, so a world clock is handy and Win7 has a clock feature that you can set up.
    In the open box when you start, type "clock gadgets" which will bring up a box with all sorts of "gadgets" bring the clock of your choice on the font page and configure it from there, you can set it so the second hand is on it and you can set it up for time zones around the world. You can then tag the clock and see if it is AM, PM etc. as well as enter text so you can tell which clock is which - you have several different clocks on you screen. I have 3, London, USA and date line.

    You man be a great grandpa but I am a great, great one, how about that;
    regards, Darrold
