the system clock on the task bar, but it is not being displayed for
normal or power users. what do I need to change to allow them to see the
taskbar clock?

Thanks in advance,

gotta be a policy for it

k, i suggest you set it at the OU level, user based policy, not machine based

gpedit shows: user configuration > administrative templates > start menu and taskbar > "remove clock from the system notification area" make sure it's either not configured or disabled

force the update by either restarting the clients or run gpudate /force
