I am using Day-O as the clock on the menu bar in place of the default clock. By default, Day-O is showing the display like below:

enter image description here

Can someone let me know if it is possible to change the format to something like 24 Jul Mon 1:52 PM?

I know entering dd MMM E h:mm a in Date & Time Format under Preferences will make it look like 24 Jul Mon 1:52 PM. What I am not sure is how can I remove the number 24 under box so that it looks exactly like the default macOS clock?

  • Can't you just simply remove dd from dd MMM E h:mm a ? Or if you are talking about removing date 24 in a box then you will have to get into app's resources. But why bother with app in this case at all... Commented Jul 24, 2017 at 9:40
  • I am asking about removing date 24 from the box.

  • If you want it to look "exactly like the default macOS clock" as you ask at the end of your question, then use the default macOS clock...

…then deselect (uncheck) Show Icon in Preferences:
