How could one always show the time (preferred with date) in the System Tray?

 

When a special amount of symbols is reached on the tray, the time display disappears to the right side.

Thank you, FreeBooter,

 

So, you think there is anything broken. When the amount of icons in the tray is little enough the time is shown.

 

Thank you for the script, I will try it.

I notice there is a space between the Action Center icon and  Clock icon this space is strange so have a look at the settings for notifications system icons maybe there will be icon that belongs to a application which you can disable.

When I drive the mouse pointer over the clock icon (the pointer is not shown, but it is over the clock on the screenshot) the space on the left side gets gray also, so the space seems to belong to the clock icon:

Yes, I have tried all of that you told me, the time / date display still disappears when there are enough icons on the tray. And other icons sometimes / often just disappear also completely.

Are you using an Insider Preview version of Windows 10 ??- one release of that recently (a couple of months ago??) exhibited the notification  area behaviour you describe, but it has been corrected in later releases.
