Here is how I did it (on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS):

Launch 'Ubuntu Software' which is built in Ubuntu 18.04.
1.Install 'Dash to Panel' shell extension from 'Add-ons' -> 'Shell Extensions'. Scroll down to find the 'Dash to Panel' extension and install it.
2.Press 'Extension Settings', find the settings button of the 'Dash to Panel' in the menu.
3.Open the configuration settings of 'Dash to Panel' and find the 'Position and Style' tab. On this tab you would find the 'Clock Location' configuration. 4.Change this to 'Right of status menu'.

This would work. However, the side-effect (desired effect in my case) is that the 'Top panel' and the default Ubuntu 'dock' would merge together to form a single panel just like in the Windows OS.
