My Menu bar now shows "Thu 9:14 PM". I want to change it to Day, Month, Year, and Time. I presume this is done by Apple>System Preferences>Language & Text>Formats>Customize, but I can't get any further, and the words "Type text and drag element to create a custm format" doesn't help. Type where? Drag from where? Drag to where?

    Drag an element from the list below into eg the Short box and add text eg : instead of /. But I don't think this will give you what you want - go instead to Date & Time Preferences/Clock, and select Show the Date. But it won't give you the year.
