Tip & How-To about Miscellaneous

Open PDF documents with an expiry date after a download.

Set the systems date (right bottom corner of taskbar) to the date the document was downloaded. Open the document (double click). When done, don't forget to set the systems clock back to today's date, as otherwise some e-mails might carry the wrong receive date.

Try increasing the height of your bottom taskbar by placing your cursor somewhere near the middle until the double-arrowheads appear; then drag the arrows upward to increase the rows on your taskbar.

I would like to display the date also at the right bottom corner of my computer. The time is already displayed there.


Which operating system do you have ?
The Window's taskbar organizes open and running programs, provides a quick way to access application shortcuts, and gives easy to access to important computer functions and utilities via the system tray. Most users of Windows center their workflow around the Window's task bar for its convenience and ease of use. With the clock function automatically enabled, users can add the date to their task bar while increasing the space for more application shortcuts.

Add The Date To The Taskbar In Windows XP/Vista Right-click on your Window's taskbar and click "Lock the taskbar" option to remove the check mark next to it and unlock your taskbar. If there is no check mark next to it, do not click it as your taskbar is already unlocked. Move your cursor to the top edge of the Start menu and wait for it to change into a double arrow. Click and hold the left mouse button and drag your mouse upwards until the taskbar physically changes in . When it does, it will add the day and the date under the time. Add The Date To The Taskbar In Windows 7 Right-click on the Window's taskbar and select "Properties" from the resulting menu. Click the check box next to "Use Small Icons" to disable the option. The icons will get slightly larger and the date will appear under the time. Click "Apply" followed by "Ok" to save your changes and exit the window.

how can i solve system calender problem.I cant fix the date and time.


For immediate results in fixing the date and time on your computer, double click on the taskbar at the bottom of your Windows screen. This is located on the bottom right-hand corner of your screen. The date and time control panel on your computer will automatically open.

Adjust the Properties
Double click the clock. A smaller date and time properties menu will open as soon as you have double clicked on the time at the bottom of your Windows computer screen. To set the date and time on your personal computer, the process is quite simple. You can use your mouse to click on the correct day, month, and year. You will also see an image of a clock on the right-hand side of the properties menu that will display the corrected time that you have entered. When you are pleased with the corrections, simply click on the OK button on your computer screen. Most modern computers automatically adjust for daylight savings, but several older models do not. As a result, you will need to update the time as mentioned.

Time Zone
Adjust the time zone on your computer by clicking once on the time zone tab that is displayed on the same properties menu that opened when you clicked on the clock at the bottom of your computer screen. To set your time zone, you can choose the correct time zone from the drop down menu. Use the small arrow to show the options in the time zone menu on your computer. Once again, you can click OK when you are finished. If you choose to have your computer automatically updated for daylight savings, then be sure that the small box at the bottom of the time zone menu is checked.

how do I set my clock on the computer


On a Windows PC, you can double-click on the digital clock down in the right-hand bottom corner and a dialog will pop up allowing you to change the date, time, etc. If the clock does not appear in the system tray (bottom-right), then open the control panel from the start menu and double-click 'Date and Time'.
