Add Date to the Menu Bar in Mac OS X [How-to]

Are you bad at remembering dates? Do you have to constantly open the Calendar app just to figure out what date/day it is? How about adding the date to the menu bar, so one glance is all that’s needed to know the date?

By default, the menu bar on Mac OS X doesn’t show the date. It shows only the time. The date and day will be shown right next to the time display on Mac’s menu bar.

Older Macs:

Mac users who are using older versions of OS X should follow the following process. Launch System Preferences > International panel > Formats > Customize and arrange the date format as you wish to see on the menu bar. This can be a little complicated because you will have to manually edit and add the handles for the time and date values.

That’s all folks!
