Show the Day of the Week and Date in Menu Bar on Mac OS X Yosemite
Grimm, priya, Eng
You're watching VisiHow. In this tutorial, we are going to show you how to choose whether the day of the week, and the date and month are shown or not in the menu bar of your Mac running OS X Yosemite.
To get started, we're going to need to open the "Date & Time" preferences panel
To do that, we'll simply go to the menu bar at the top, and click on the clock or date one time.
Then, we're going to scroll down to the bottom, and we're going to select "Open Date & Time Preferences" by tapping once on the touchpad, or clicking the mouse once
When we've done this, the "Date & Time" preferences panel will appear
In the "Date & Time" preferences panel, we will note that we can scroll down to "Date options" under "Show date and time in menu bar".
On "Date options", we can check or uncheck "Show the day of the week" and "Show date"
As we can see, in this demonstration, the system indicates that it's "Fri Jul 17"
Let's go back down and uncheck "Show date"
Now, we've unchecked "Show date", and "Jul 17" has vanished
If we check "Show date" again, then "Jul 17" will reappear
If we uncheck "Show day of the week", then "Fri" will no longer appear, and "Jul 17" will be the only thing that appears there
Again, we can check that to show the day of the week again
If we uncheck them both, then there will be nothing shown in terms of the date
In order to add the date or day of the week later, we will we need to come back to the "Date & Time" preferences panel
Let's now close this window by going over to the left and clicking the red circle with the black "x"
With the closure of this window, our tutorial on how to add or remove the day of the week or the date of the month has been concluded
