clock showing date

Specs: WinXP Pro, 2.2Ghz;1Gb
In my WinXP, doubling the height of the task bar has enabled the clock to show the weekday and date as well as the time.
In another's WinXp, that doubling of the taskbar height has resulted in only the weekday being added to the time - not the date. (How) Can that be improved ?

TRY
Control Panel,
click "Date, Time, Language, .....",
then click "Change the format of numbers, Dates, and Times".
then on the "Regional Options" tab,
click the "Customize..." button.
You will then see Date tab, and Time tab.

I guess settings are there.

On the Date tab, my Long date format says ----
dddd, MMMM dd, yyyy

That gives me
Sunday, April 19, 2009

There are NO options where you suggested, that appear to influence the amount of information shown by the systray clock.
I suspect that it is influenced by the size of the font in Display in Control Panel, - smaller font allowing room for more information -
but connot test this conveniently right now.

Also the Screen Resolution could affect that also.

After I posted Response # 1, I had tested the information I gave.
I found that with my small Taskbar, so that only the time shows, placing mouse pointer on the time, a popup shows ----
Sunday, April 19, 2009

With enlarging the Taskbar will give this in vertical order ----

The vertical order does not seem to be fixed. On a PC I have just got access to, for a double height Task Bar, gives time at the top, weekday in middle and date at the bottom. I can also confirm that enlarging the fonts in Control Panel; Display; Appearance tab; Font size; reduces the amount shown. There are 3 fonts sizes and they correspond to the display of just time; time and another, time and both others.

That was the one I was looking for but couldn't find it.

It is the original and still probably the best but the author hasn't done anything with it for years.
