    Win10 Default Lock Screen theme does not show 24 Hour Time


    I regularly use the 24 hour time format for all of my systems.
    Its not a major issue I have now with Win10, but its annoying a bit.

    Before I logon to Windows 10, the default lock screen theme has the time in 12 hour format instead of the 24 hour format.
    In Windows, I set everything in 24 hour time. Period. I just don't like 12 hour time.
    However, when I sign out or just by locking my screen, it does show the time in 24 hour format.
    But when I reboot my system it shows the time in 12 hour format.

    Is this a bug or what in Win10?

    Thanks!

    Yes, It shows me that too within the display Lock screen settings preview.
    It does still show the time in 24 hour format only when I sign out or Lock my screen.
    But does not only when rebooting or after shutting down the system.

    Ok you're welcome.
    That's the only thing I ever do extra, being an American expat and having a mix of US & European settings.

    Yep. And when it comes to buying watches, I only would buy a watch that has 24 hour time on it.
    And I am an American and still prefer to use 24 hour time.

    I hate 24 hour time. I hate having to do math in my head to figure out the time. What is so hard adding am or pm to the end of time. Also most analog clocks are 12 hours so it really makes no sense.

    I should be able to Copy over the settings to my current account since I am running as an Admin user.
    I can test it using my Win8.1 or Win10 test machines.

    This also happens on Win8.1 as well.


    I should test and let you know.

    Basically all it does is set your time/date/language settings system wide as default(for new user accounts too).
