You would do the same thing

Stretch the top line of the "Task Bar" upwards a bit, the date and day of week will appear.

But if you don't want to stretch the Task Bar, I would download a freeware called TClock 2.2.8 at Read the readme.txt file for instructions. If everything OK, now you will see the date will displayed in Day, Date, Time in one line. Right-click in that date area for more adjustment options.
