Windows 10 taskbar time and date display

After the last update, the displayed date and time in the taskbar switched to the long format displayed in three lines. How can I change it back to the short (1 line) format? Changing settings for the date and time did not change the format (apart if you make the long format like the short one).

Hi HORSTROGALLA

If you show Small Taskbar buttons, the clock will always be one or three lines


Right click an empty part of the Taskbar and choose 'Taskbar settings'

Turn off 'Show small Taskbar buttons'

Close the settings App

Right click your Taskbar and make sure ;Lock the Taskbar is not icked

Click and drag the top of the taskbar until the date and time is only two lines

That's it!
