Set The System Tray Clock To Display What Day It Is

How to set the clock display in the Windows 7 System Tray to display what day of the week it is?
OS: Windows 7

If you set the taskbar height to 
  • 1 unit tall, it displays time.
  • 2 units tall displays time and date.
  • 3 units tall displays time, date, day.
If you use your taskbar 3 units high (that means you will see two rows of icons for running program windows across the bottom of your screen). Follow the below steps if you want to make it just show the time and day while 2 units high.
Try the steps below:
  1. Click the system clock on the System Tray and then click "Change date and time settings…"
  2. Click "Change date and time…" button.
  3. Click "Change calendar settings".
  4. On the Customize Format window, type dddd dd MMM into the Short date text box.
  5. Click Apply.
  6. Click OK.
Note: The system clock in the system tray displays the Short date format, and some programs uses the Long date format.  If you are interested, you can refer to: MSDN Article On DateTimeFormatInfo Class
