I'm currently using Windows 7 Ultimate. I've seen that some people have full date/time info in their system tray clock like this:

full date/time information in system tray clock

However, my current system tray clock is shown like this:

I wonder how I could change the clock, but can't find any way to do so without a third party application. Maybe there's a way to hack into registry or something?

I know that I can enlarge the taskbar to get it, but I don't want to lose my screen space that way.


solved: Finally I gave up with the "non 3rd party" idea and use Tclock Light to do it, this small free, portable application do it awesome :D.
finally I use tclock

Are you sure these "some people" aren't using third party tools? –  Jonas Heidelberg Oct 26 '11 at 16:59

thanks, but I've tried that link before, in that, they just show how to customize the way Win7 display date, and we must use Large Icon to get Win7 display date first. –  LongTTH Oct 27 '11 at 4:16
