    How do I change a box to a colon in the time on the taskbar?


    There is a check box or a box on the task bar in between the hour and the minutes. It should be a colon not a box. I have tried a lot of things to remove it but have been unsuccessful. I don't know how it got there. How do I change a box back to a colon on the time view in the task bar?

    Looked at youtubes and unchecked boxes in view in explorer.

    Thank you problem solvers, Jan

    :)

    Search box on taskbar missing.

    Hi John,

    This issue with search box may happen if it's hidden from the taskbar.

    To resolve the issue, follow the steps below:

    • Right-click on the taskbar and select Search.
    • Select Show search box.

    Feel free to post back if you have other concerns.

  4. How do I change a box to a colon in the time on the taskbar?

    Windows Time Display in Taskbar

    Hello, I have updated to Windows 10 Pro Creator's update on a PC. I changed the system font back to the font I normally use, Architect's Daughter. After changing the system font, the windows time in the taskbar does not read correctly. The time normally
    looks like this: 3:45 PM. After changing the font, the time no longer has the : (colon) in it, but has an open rectangular box instead.

    No matter what font I now choose as default, even going back to the system default, the : stays a rectangular box. So far, no other oddities have shown up in programs or display by changing the system default font. I have removed the time from the taskbar
    and reshown it using Turn system icons on or off in Settings. Still no : just the open rectangular box.

    Any suggestions or should this be reported as a bug in the creators update?
