As I read your question, you want to see a day name (Saturday) in the date format of the taskbar. Alas, in the Settings that only available in the LONG date notation: dddd d MMMM yyyy (so Saturday 22 September 201Cool. There is not a single notation (short or long, that offers 3-letter day names (Sat).

Moreover, I'm afraid the taskbar uses the SHORT date notation only. There are day name options there. Seems a change request for Microsoft. Become an 'insider' and ask.
