How to Remove Date and Time from the Taskbar

Here’s how to remove the date and time from the Windows 10 taskbar notification area:

Launch taskbar settings.

Hit Turn system icons on or off link.

Turn off “Clock.”

That’s it.

Note: Turn on the “Clock” to add the date and time.

Alternative Methods

Method #1

Launch local group policy editor.

Navigate to the User Configuration > Administrative Templates > Start Menu and Taskbar.

Then double-click “Remove Clock from the system notification area” in the right pane.

Select Enabled.

Hit the OK button.

Restart your PC.

That’s all.

Note: In order to add it, follow the steps above but select Not Configured or Disabled.

Method #2

Launch Windows 10 Registry Editor. I suggest a Registry backup before continuing.

Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER > Software > Microsoft > Windows > CurrentVersion > Policies > Explorer.

Right-click on the blank space in the right pane.

Select New > DWORD (32-bit) Value.

Enter HideClock as a name and then press the Enter key.

Double-click it and enter 1 in the Value data field.

Hit the OK button.

Restart File Explorer.

That’s it.

Note: If you want to add it, follow the above steps but replace the 1 with 0 or remove the DWORD you created above.
