Day shown on taskbar and unable to make settings on taskbar displays.

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by Charlie Evans, May 31, 2005.

  1. Clean install with all updates of XP Pro. Sempron 2600+ Socket A on
    Shuttle 40VN Mainboard with 256 DDR Memory
    The ( DAY )(Spelled out) has shown up on the taskbar under the clock. The
    taskbar "Seems" to be a wee bit taller (Wider)? than before. Also when I
    right click on the taskbar and select properties, The taskbar and Start menu
    appears. If I click on customize in the lower right hand corner, when the
    Customize Notifications are displayed, I cannot "open" any of them to change
    the settings. If it is set to always hide, cannot change it to Hide when
    inactive, etc.... Any ideas on this at all, I have about given up on.
    Cannot find where to get rid of the date thing at all.

    Thanks for reading...

    Unlock the taskbar - rightclick on it and select "unlock". Now, hover the
    mouse cursor over the top line of the taskbar until you get the
    double-arrow. Click, and drag the task bar back to the normal height.
    Problem solved.

  5. Thanks for the replies, but when highlighted, the notification shows a arrow
    drop-down, but will not Open at all. Still trying to find something useful
    on the Net but so far no luck....
