    Found another 'fix' for those who like to mess with System Fonts:

    In the Settings, use a semi-colon: h;mm

    Click image for larger version.

    Click image for larger version.

    (Depends on the font use choose though!)

    Found a fix if you want to use custom system font. Go to the registry to:


    Double click on "sShortTime"

    Open up Character Map, switch to unicode and search for "colon"

    Pick the last one that shows up (U+A789: Modifier Letter Colon)

    Copy that and replace the colon in the sShortTime string.

    Hit "OK" and wait for the clock to change to the next minute. Blam! Colon

    As an experiment, I tried your method and I can confirm it does exactly what it says on the tin! Excellent info, and if a dufus like me can follow the guide, then anyone can
