Your Chromebook can now display the date on the system tray or taskbar. In this article, we will learn how to show the date on the Chromebook taskbar.
Enable Show Date in Tray
As a work-in-progress feature, you will need to enable an experimental flag to try this out.
- Open a new tab and go to chrome://flags
- Search and locate the “Enable Show Date in Tray” flag.
- From the drop-down, select Enabled.
- Restart your Chromebook.
After the restart, you should see today’s date on your Chromebook system tray. The system tray is the area on the lower right-hand corner of your Chromebook screen.
Now that we can show dates on the Chromebook desktop, I would also love to see a calendar widget.
I tried clicking the date after enabling this new feature, hoping that it will open a calendar. However, looks like we don’t have that ability yet.
Is there any other small feature similar to this you wish your Chromebook had? Let me know in the comments section below.
