In computer language, system time is a representation of the standard of a computer system over time. For various questions about the complexity of systems, the system time has become the calendar time, which is very suitable for human knowledge. Since we know of a simple date and time function that is displayed in the lower right corner of the screen, we are not aware of adding a day of the week function to it. Put simply, Windows 10 offers the flexibility to display the "day of the week" in addition to the date and time.
