  • Staff

This tutorial will show you how to expand and collapse the calendar view on the taskbar for your account in Windows 11.

When you open the clock on the taskbar in Windows 11, you will see a calendar showing the current date.

You can expand or collapse the calendar view. The calendar view you select is remembered, so it will always open how last set.

The expanded calendar view is the default setting allowing you to see the full calendar.

The collapsed calendar view minimizes the calendar to only see the current date.


Here's How:

1 Click/tap on the Clock button on the taskbar corner. (see screenshots below)

2 Perform one of the following available option:
  • Click/tap on the Collapse button to minimize the calendar view.
  • Click/tap on the Expand button to expand the calendar view.

That's it,

I was wondering the same, and freaking disliked not having relevant answers around.

Since I fixed the problem, here is the solution, because even paid microsoft representatives cannot answer that.

Follow every steps carefully, or you will break your system ( no joke ) We will play in the Registry Editor.

  • Disclaimer, if you make a bad move, or that you didnt backup your original Registry, NOT MY PROBLEM *

  1. Press Win + R to open the Run dialog box

  2. Type ''RegEdit'' and press Enter to open the 'Registry Editor'.

  3. Navigate to the following, EXACTLY ( or you WILL break your system if you change anything not related to my troubleshooting ) ;

  4. HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced

  5. Look for a DWORD value named 'ShowClock' or similar. If you can't find it, you might need to create it. If you can't see it, heres how to create it ;
    *5. A) Right click on a blank space in the *\Advanced folder, then click New
  6. You will now see different choices, but you will have to click this exact value --> 'DWORD 32 bits'

  7. Add it, you will not break anything after clicking left click in a blank space since the default hexadecimal value is set to 0, then right click on it, rename it exactly like that '' ShowClock ''.

  8. Once renamed, right click on it again, Edit.

  9. Change the Binary Value from 0, to 1. Then press OK

  10. Problem Solved.
