If you've got a clock on the wall or on your desk, and your Windows taskbar is already crammed full of notification icons and other things, you might want to hide the clock to free up a little space.

Right-click on the taskbar and click on Taskbar settings. In the resulting settings window, scroll down and click on Turn system icons on or off. (In prior versions, right-click on the taskbar and click Properties. In the resulting dialog, click on Customize... for the Notification area. Near the bottom of the resulting window, click on Turn system icons on or off.)
