How to Show Date on Chromebook Taskbar

Chrome OS can now display date on the system tray or taskbar. In this article, we will learn how to enable date on taskbar.

Enable Show Date in Tray

As a work-in-progress feature, you will need to enable an experimental flag to try this out.

  1. Open a new tab and go to chrome://flags
  2. Search and locate the Enable Show Date in Try flag.
  3. From the drop-down, select Enabled.
  4. 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 have the ability to show date on the Chromebook desktop, I would love to see a calendar widget as well.

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.
