Change Date Format for multiple Users

Hi - I'm hoping someone can help. I have one computer with five users. My user is the admin and the other users are not. I have changed the date format under my user - but cannot do the same for the other users. I get the message to contact the system administrator. How do I get around this? I need all of the users to have the same, specific date format. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Hi Brekai.

What you could do is add a group to the user just to allow them to change date and time

Date and Time - Allow or Prevent Users and Groups from Changing

Have a look at this tut

Thanks for your reply Benjy206. However, I cannot find the file local security policy window. I checked in the System 32 folder and I have no such file as secpol.msc. Can you help me with this? Thanks a bunch!

I do not have a Local Security Policy in my Admin Tools. I also did a search of my C drive and could not find it.

Put you mouse over computer in start menu. Right click and select manage. Should be within that window
