Desktop Time and Date

#1 Postby Tyro65 » Sun Feb 25, 2018 3:39 pm

I lost the time and date display from my MX-17 desktop. Is there a way to restore it without reinstalling the system?

Thanks.

check out conky-manager. that controls the big display, which I assume is what you mean.

Thanks.
1) Conky only has 2 options: desktop 1 or all desktops. You can easily select which you want with MX Conky.
2) There is a Conky Toggle in the left side of the Start Menu; if you clicked on that by mistake, click it again.
3) what Dolphin_Oracle said
