    24 hour clock on lockscreen

    I pretty much have resolved all my niggling little issues with Windows 10.....I however can not seem to get the clock on the lockscreen to show as 24 hour clock. I have it set to 24 hour clock everywhere else but the lockscreen. In fact even in the preview for the lockscreen settings it shows it in 24 hour mode, but in reality when the lockscreen comes up it still shows the time in 12 hour clock. So am I missing something somewhere? If it shows on the preview as 24 hour clock, this leads me to believe that this capability does exist. No? Any input welcome.

    Hello Csquared,

    I haven't tested this below in Windows 10 yet, but it's how to do set 24 hour time on the lock screen in Windows 8.1. It should be the same.

    I'm having a similar problem. When I start my computer in the morning the lock screen shows the time in the 12 hour format. If I should restart the computer or resume from sleep, the lock screen shows the time in 24 hour format (the time in the system tray is set to display in 24 hour format). It appears as if the initial lock screen used when the computer is booting up does not refer to the system setting for time display until after the initial login by the user.

    I have tried to find somewhere to report this to Microsoft but cannot find a location or means to report this problem.

    Does it show the 24-hour time properly on the lock screen when you are signed in and just locked (Win+L) the computer?

    Ok. It appears that it's just not showing 24-hour time when no user is signed in which would be normal.
