This is in response to a query posted by a reader under Windows 8 Date and time settings
I have a minor question – in Win7, I could have my time display on the desktop toolbar as as 12-hour format. In Win8, however, there appears to be no way to change the toolbar clock from 24 hour time. Or am I missing something?
Windows 8 users can use the change date and time settings for changing the 24 hour time format to 12 hour format.
Step 1: Click the date and time display on the Windows taskbar then the Change date and time settings link
Step 2: In the Date and Time window, click the Change date and time button.
Step 3: This should display the below Date and Time Settings window.
Now click the Change calendar settings link.
Step 4: In the Customize Format window, navigate to Time tab and set the Short time format to hh:mm tt and click OK to apply and save the changes.
