Today after updating MSE, the date displayed was backwards to what I am used to seeing with the day of the month first and then the month (see attached screen shot - it is now 16/02/2020 instead of 02/16/2020). Is there a way to change it back to display with the month first, then the day?

I've done some searching but can't find a way to change the date format.

Today when I booted up, I noticed that the date in the taskbar was in the format dd/mm/yyyy. I followed these instructions:

 

https://www.howtogee...indows-taskbar/

 

and set it to the format I am familiar with (i.e. mm/dd/yyyy). It also fixed the date displayed in MSE update.

 

Go figure how that got changed!

Nice work,

 

I saw some information about changing date format in windows but didn't think it would effect programs like Microsoft security essentials,
