    The clock display on my taskbar has run off and hidden. Could one of you
    kind folks give me some idea as to where to find it? Win7 64 bit. TIA

    If you were running XP, I would say right click on the taskbar, select
    Properties, then check the box next to "Show the clock." Maybe it's in
    the same place in Win7, or is this yet another thing that has moved?

    it fooled me trying to turn it off...

    right click taskbar
    properties
    on the taskbar tab - customize
    on the control panel page that pops up
    turn system icons on or off
    and it should be on the next window at the top of the list

    Phew and I though win 7 was more user friendly...

    hope that helps

    Since I, unusually, know the answer I will put it even though you have
    certainly done it by now. The clock showing on the task bar is in fact now
    in the Notification Area. If you open Control Panel, you will see that one
    of the items for selection is Notification Area Icons. If you click on that
    you will be able to find a little row of blue letters which says 'Turn
    System Icons on or off'. Click on that and up pops a popup that includes
    the ability to turn off the clock icon. It does not of course as anyone
    should know actually mean 'turn off the clock icon'. The clue of course is
    that everybody knows that there is no clock icon. Nope. It means show the
    time and date at the end of the Start bar (AKA task bar), or don't as the
    case may be.

    Actually a faster way is to right click on a blank bit of the Notification
    Area if you can get to one, and select 'Customize Notification Items'. That
    is a way of getting to the Control panel page quicker than trying to find
    out how to start the control panel.

    This is in fact slightly less daft than it seems. They have put in what
    they refer to as 'gadgets', no doubt because the term 'widget' has been used
    by some other software that I did not like much when I tried it because it
    uses terms like 'widget' and so I reckon it was for pre-teenage girls.
    Anyway one of the gadgets they have put in the gadgets bit is a clock so you
    can have two clocks (or more of course) going. If they hide away the
    workings of the old style clock it might make the gadgets thing more
    popular.

    I do not know it is for that reason, but I thought I would try to find an
    excuse.

    Right click on existing date/time, select "Adjust Date/Time, create as many
    clocks
    as you like! Don't need a clock gadget, unless you want "eye candy" or extra
    features...
