    how to make date format change permanent

    My windows date-format default setting is dd/mm/yyyy
    I have an application which requires the format to be in yyyy/mm/dd, which I did make the change in windows settings.
    However I noticed that the change will be reverted back from yyyy/mm/dd back to dd/mm/yyyy automatically after some time.
    As such I wish to know if there were ways to make the change permanent. Thank you.

    Hi, don't know why it would reset, I'm afraid, but here's an idea:

    a. set the format:
    Change Date and Time Formats in Windows 10
    (Settings or C. Panel)

    b. disable change
    Enable or Disable Changing Date and Time Formats in Windows
    (See reg file option if using Home)

    thank you dalchina...I've made the changes and watching if the reverting will happen again.
    Effectiveness of the fix cannot be seen immediately as, like I said, the reverting happened in random..

    Thank you once again for your support.
