Change clock setting to show days of the week in Windows 10

In computer language, system time is a representation of a computer system’s standard on the passing of time. For the various issues on complexity over the systems, system time was converted into calendar time which is highly suitable for human knowledge. As we guys are aware of a simple Date & Time feature which displays on the lower right corner of your screen, we aren’t aware of adding a week day feature to it. In simple words, Windows 10 offers the flexibility to display “week day” in addition to date & time.
