How to change the format of Dates and Times in Windows 10

By default, Windows formats dates with slashes (MM/DD/YY). However, if you want to use a different format for the date, such as using periods instead of slashes (MM.DD.YY), that’s easy to change in Windows’ settings. You can also change the format of the time. Some programs will even inherit the format you set in Windows.

How to Access the Date and Time Format Settings in Windows 10

If you’re using Windows 10, click on the Search box or button on the Taskbar. If you don’t see the Search box or button, you can easily enable on or the other.

Type “change the date” in the Search box. Results start to display as you type. Click “Change the date and time format” in the list of results.

On this Change Date and Time Formats settings screen, you can select different formats for the “Short date,” “Long date,” “Short time,” and “Long time.”

There are various formats using slashes and a couple using dashes, and you can mix and match them freely.

You aren’t limited to the pre-set options though—you can access a screen in the old Control Panel to enter a custom date or time format.
