How to Remove / Hide Time and Date on Taskbar in Windows 10

Don’t like to see the date and time on the taskbar? Here’s a simple way to remove or hide date and time on the taskbar in Windows 10.

By default, Windows taskbar shows the clock on the bottom right-hand corner. It is pretty non-intrusive and generally useful in day to day life. When you click on it, you will get access to the calendar and even agenda too. However, there will be times like when you are giving a presentation, screencasting, or create tutorials when you might want to hide the date and time on Taskbar.

Thankfully, it is pretty easy to remove the date and time from the taskbar. All you have to do is toggle a switch and you are good to go. Let me show you how it’s done.

Remove or Hide Date and Time on Taskbar

Like I said, hiding clock on the taskbar is nothing hard. Just a toggle and you are done. Being system widget or icon, Windows has a dedicated option to toggle on and off date and time on taskbar.

1. First, open the PC Settings app by pressing the Win + I keyboard shortcut. Alternatively, you can also access the Settings app by click on the “All Settings” button in the Notification Center.

2. In the Settings app, go to the “Personalization” page.
