[Solved] How do I change Day & Time display in GNOME 3 to include date


I would like to display date in addition to, currently, date and time displayed top center. I'm retired and need to frequently be reminded of the passage of the year.

I've rummaged the help.gnome.org library, but, newbie like, don't know how to properly ask the question.

I've had Fedora 18 running for about 100 hours, added a couple of programs, Maxima and Stellarium, and gotten Firefox and Thunderbird apparently reliable.

TIA

Right cick on gnome panel > Select Add To Panel > Select Clock from the list of apps > Select Add

You will then see the clock on gnome panel, then in order to further customize it, right click on the clock, choose Preferences option and manage your preferences.

Thanks. The CLOCK is on the GNOME panel - top center - displaying day and time. Right clicking it opens a panel with an adjustable calendar, today and tomorrow task lists, a Date and Time link to system settings, and Open Calendar that opens default calendar Evolution. Nothing labeled Preferences is shown.

Install gnome-tweak-tool using yum if you have not got this tool already installed. In the Shell tab, there is an slider switch option to show the date in the clock.
