    Accidentally removed Date and Time from taskbar Help

    Hello Windows 8 Forum Communities,

    I appologize if there is already a thread with this information. I searched for one first, but got frustrated when I couldn't find one with in 10-15 minutes (maybe I'm searching wrong). Either way, the other day I accidentally removed the date and time from the bottom right hand corner of the Windows 8 taskbar. I did this when i was trying to set the time from the Windows defaulted US Pacific Time to US Eastern Standard Time. I can not figure out how to get it back on the taskbar. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Also if anyone knows why my Java location on my computer is saying that it is "corrupted". I think it is related to Windows 8 upgrade.

    Again apologies if there are already established links for this content. I simply couldn't find them.

    Thanks Again

New user - Time, date box
I have a new lap top with windows 8 :confused:. So much to learn! I do not know how to see the time and date. It suddenly appears on lower left for some reason but I cannot see where to access it when I want it. I am happy that I have found this forum as Windows 8 does not look like fun!!!! Thanks.
