Edited by 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.
Thank you for choosing VisiHow. Should you have questions, comments or suggestions, we would love to hear back from you in the section below.
