Open "Control Panel"

Select "Regional and Language Options"


In the pull down menu, Select "English, United States" (or whatever you think it should be)


You can also select the "Customize" button, and then the "Time" tab.

On the next screen, you'll be able to set the display in whatever format you prefer.

If you need more help, please don't hesitate to ask.

Its a quick fix...

go into the controll panel under regonal and lanuage options
click the customize button beside the country drop down bar
under the time tab go down to the time format and select the "h:mm:ss tt" selection
and that should be what you want.


Cheers

Thanks for the unintended help, I had always wanted to use a 24hr clock but never put in the time to figure out how to do it. Now I'm a happy hacker. :thumbsup:

Just a quick lesson in how to use 24 hour time. When you have any number greater than 1200, always subtract 2 from the second digit, For example: 1500 minus 2 from the 5 =3. Again even when having the 20 hours such as 2100. Using basic math 2 from the one is like basic arithmatic you can't subtract 2 from 1 so it's 2 from 11 which is 9.

So in summary subtract 2 from the second digit in numbers above 1200 and that is your time, in 12 hour settings.

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.

Sorry but what I meant is that I never tried to change the windows clock to display a 24hr clock. I have been using the 24hr clock on my watch for a number of years and I have found that it is more convenient to use than the 12hr clock. Now I need to figure out how to change my car clock...
