Hi, I know that I have seen this before but can't seem to get it to work.  What do you do to show the time on top and date under it on the bottom right side of the taskbar?

This only works if you size the taskbar to at least two rows, or have big icons set up on the taskbar.

Qlemo has pointed out that size is the issue. You may want to consider moving your taskbar to the left, thereby freeing up vertical space on a modern, widescreen format display (16x9 or 16x10), where vertical space is more precious than horizontal. Then make it wide enough. Here's what mine looks like in the lower left of the screen:
