Clock Setting 12 hrs
#1
How do I change my clock setting to 12hr format?

I tried right click, clock setting, set up NTP etc... but still its showing me 24 hrs. format.

The setting is in locales; where you can set other things like currency, date format, &c.

That said, learn to use a 24 hour clock; its more sophisticated, its more accurate, more people on earth tell time that way (including every government and military organization & IBM) and its just easier. The only reason people ever used a twelve hour format was that watches were easier to make that way, and most people in the 1800s were not smart enough to understand a twenty-four hour format.

QED; leave it alone.

Just because it was done that way in the past doesn't mean it is right for the situation.

Thank you for letting us know that the settings where in locales. No thank you for telling us we were wrong for a non-technical reason.

Maybe I am one of the people where are not smart enough to understand a twenty-four hour format? Don't judge me for what I want my device to do.
