Today I noticed that clicking on the time/date in the top-right of my screen displays the notifications panel, instead of the date settings as it has the last 5-10 years. I used this as recently as last week.

I just updated Big Sur last night to 11.6, is it possibly related?

This is expected behavior in macOS Big Sur. Apple introduced the new-to-Mac Notification Center which dramatically changed a lot of long-standing Mac conventions.

  • I've almost definitely been able to click on the clock since I get this machine a few weeks ago... it came with Big Sur pre-installed. Are you saying there's now no shortcut to the time settings?
