Changing Date Format in Regedit

Recommended Posts

Any one know where the reg key is that controls the date format in windows?

ie. dd/mm/yyyy

 

I have a 3 pc's on my domain that will not change through windows normal way.

Regonal and Language Option -> Customize -> Date

 

I change it to Aust format, but just stays in the US format.

 

I tried importing [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Time Zones\AUS Eastern Standard Time]

But that just controls the region setting (EG: daylight savings)

 

Thanks!

The key you are looking for is HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\International

 

The two settings you are looking for are sShortDate and sLongDate

 

Note that this is a per user setting so you will have to modify it as the user who is logged in.

Modify the registry settings for the user "Default User" and that should push your desired settings to any new user profiles created on the workstation.
