I just updated my PC to Windows 11 and am fairly impressed with it at first glance, but one thing I'm noticing is that when I click on the date/time in the taskbar, the calendar no longer shows up. Is this a bug or an intended feature? I've been trying to look around in settings to enable it showing up, but can't find anything about it.

One click should show today's date, you can expand that to show the month, restarting explorer exe might help but if not I'd be inclined to carry out an in place upgrade

When I click on the time/date, nothing happens. Back in Windows 10, it always got the calendar to pop up.View attachment 20782


If you're using Winaero Tweaker, there's a setting in there that causes this problem.

Make sure that "Desktop and Taskbar > Disable Action Center" is NOT checked, in Winaero Tweaker.



Even if you don't use Winaero Tweaker... check this entry in the registry. It should be set to ZERO, on Windows 11.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Explorer

You may have to create the "Explorer" key on the left hand side, on Windows 11.
If you don't have... DisableNotificationCenter ...you can create it (32 bit D-word), and set it to ZERO.

It's existence won't hurt anything, one way or the other.



On Windows 11, I had the same no calendar problem.
I had HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Explorer\DisableNotificationCenter ...set to 1.
When I changed it to ZERO and rebooted... the calendar worked again.






@Brink
In my case this occured because I did an In-Place Upgrade from Win 10 Home to Win 11 Home, and it carried this setting over from Windows 10. It works fine on Windows 10. On Win 11 it killed the calendar.
Setting DisableNotificationCenter back to ZERO fixed the problem.

I just tried this and it worked after restarting, thanks. I was going to try the solution in the post above it too, but it was quite a lot so I went with this one first and glad it worked out.

Good job. :-)


If you keep backups... remember that this registry tweak isn't in your latest backup.
