You will be surprised of several changes in mobile device usability of the Window 10 after it was modified by its developers. The update included the general view of “Date and Time” applet that was located in the default notification system bar or tray. To create a contemporary design, Windows 10 adopted a modern style: it is now built flatter, bigger in size and its settings connected to a novel control panel. However, using the new look applet provides minimal advantage for desktop users as it needs a bigger area that would even be an encumbrance.
If users accustomed to Windows 7/8 do not approve the stylish look of date and time panel in Windows 10, then it must be reverted to its former classical look. You will recall that Windows 9901 Build 10 introduced time bar’s recent interface but was later disabled by default.
For default procedures in Panel Clock of Windows 10, do the following:
Via registry, you can revert to the previous type panel.
- Begin with regedit. exe of Registry Editor.
- Go to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ ImmersiveShell.
- Generate an innovative parameter with type DWORD consisting of 32 bits using the name USEWIN32 TrayClockExperience
- Alter UseWins32TrayClockExperience from 0 to 1.
Note: This command can do the same operation:
REG ADD “HKLM \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ ImmersiveShell” / v UseWin32TrayClockExperience / t REG_DWORD / d 0x00000001 / f
- The calendar and time in the classic interface must appear each time you click date/time in the notification bar.
You can go back to the present panel date and time by changing parameter UseWin32TrayClockExperience to 0, or decide to delete it.
