    The date shows if there is room. If the taskbar is just a single row
    high then there usually isn't enough room to show the date. Right click
    on the taskbar and make sure that Lock the Taskbar is not checked. With
    it unchecked you can then click, hold and drag the top of the taskbar up
    to a height that allows enough room for the date to show with the time.
    Once you have it where you want it consider locking it again so it
    stays in that position.

    If you resize the Taskbar (by right click unchecking the lock the
    taskbar) upward the date should show.
    And there are thirdparty tools also.Google is your friend.
