In our previous post, I referenced the Kirk McElhearn’s excellent Macworld.com article with the (almost) same long title, discussing How to Hide the Dock. Be sure to go back and read it if you haven’t yet. This time I’m running a bit about the clock in the menu bar, up to the right there. See it? Well, here’s Kirk on how to get the most out of that.
Display the date and day of the week in your menu bar
If you’ve got the clock visible in the menu bar, you might find that just seeing the time isn’t enough. Go to the Date & Time preference pane, and then click on the Clock tab. Here, you can make some changes: choose to show the day of the week, the date, AM/PM, and more. If you tend to forget the date or which day it is, this can help you keep track of time with a simple glance at the menu bar. You’ll also find a setting there to have the clock talk to you, every hour, on the hour.
Thanks, Kirk. Couldn’t have put it better myself. That’s all today from that series but if you’re feeling ambitious, just click here and tackle a few more. Just promise iSensei you will try this one at least! As always, I highly recommend Macworld.com as a great resource for discovering the cool things your Mac can do.
