    The System Tray's Time/Date Display changed without my intentional intervention. It used to display (top to bottom)
    • Time
    • Date (MM/DD/YYYY)
    • Day of Week
    It has stopped displaying the Date - Date (MM/DD/YYYY)

    Wazzup with that? How do I get the date back the into the display?

    Additional Info:
    I use the following display settings - they have not changed recently:
    • Screen resolution - 1280 x 1024 (the highest for my video)
    • 32-bit color (again, the highest)
    • 96 DPI
    • 2-row taskbar (see image, above)
    • No screensaver
    • Default theme

    snorkytheweasel, Have you gone into your Control Panel>Regional and Language Options>Regional Options tab>Customize button and tried adjusting the settings under the Time and Date tabs?

    Those settings control how the display would look if it would display, The problem is that xp has lost 1 line of the 3-line display.

    Try changing your theme back to the original Windows XP theme, instead of the Classic theme.
