      Sorry, I thought it would be obvious that it won’t work with a truncated taskbar. I’ll have to put a note at that the taskbar has to be in its default position.

    This solution did not work on my PC.
    I have tried it twice and restarted every time.
    Only the time shows on my taskbar, not the date!
    Any other suggestion as to the problem

      It only works with the taskbar in its default position (bottom).
