Windows 7: Change Display Date Format WLM

Change Display Date Format WLM

This may be helpful to some of you? I was irrated that WLM only displayed the day and month in its boxes. I have discovered that WLM takes its display settings from the 'Short Date' as setup in 'Control Panel', 'Regional & Language Options'. You can only use the preset options available in the drop down box but at least my boxes now include the year!
Hope I'm not repeating something that has already been covered in this forum only my search didn't reveal that?

All the date formats in the "R & L Options" drop-down boxes include the year, so I don't understand which WLM boxes were not showing the year or how it could be fixed by making another "R & L Options" choice that also included the year.

Hi Roncerr

It seems that you are right so I can only assume that I have a program that added that format which you can do via 'additional settings' - I can only assure you that it was not me. Still we live and learn and hopefully other users will now be more familiar with those settings as indeed I am, so thanks for pointing that out.
