How to Show or Hide Clock and Date from Taskbar in Windows 10?

On Windows 10, the Clock icon appears in the bottom-right corner of the Taskbar to display the current time and date. On hovering the mouse cursor, it also shows the week name, date, and year. By clicking on it, you can access the Windows calendar. Apart from this, you can easily adjust the date and time by right-clicking on it without opening the Settings app.

Although this information can be helpful, it is not for everyone since it can add unnecessary distraction to the workflow. Sometimes, we may want to hide the date and time from the Taskbar for other reasons. For example, when recording a video, giving a presentation, etc.
