Time settings?

How do I change the time output?

It is currently like this.
07:44:08.

I would like it like this.
19:44:08.

But I can't find out what setting I have to change for that :S.

Time Format - Change

Click Start () and in the right-hand column click Control Panel. Next, click on Clock, Language, and Region. Under Region and Language, click on Change the date, time, or number format. Alternatively, click Start () and type Change the date, time, or number format in the search box and press Enter. Either method will open the dialogue panel shown below.

Click on each of the drop boxes in the section Date and time formats and make sure that it is showing as in the image below. Finally, click on OK to put your settings into effect.

Pick another format - e.g. Germany.

Strange. This is what I see when I select Dutch (Netherlands):

Try changing it to English (United Kingdom), as shown in my earlier post, and see if you can get it to show correctly. If you can, try switching it back to Dutch (Netherlands) to see if the settings stick.

Just had another thought. You aren't 12 hours out in your time, are you?

Its 21:58 here in The Netherlands.

Switching to United Kingdon didn't help either.
