    windows 10 calendar date format


    Hi guys I have just installed windows 10 home not pro and I have managed to sort out the date format in the taskbar (bottom right) into UK format but I have started to use the calendar but that format is still in USA format and I want to change it.
    I added google calendar but not sure which setting I need to be changing I have looked in my google account and that says UK date format so i'm thinking its an outlook setting maybe.

    hoping the photo shows below the app/software and have also put the app icon under the photo

    as you can see in the red box it says 1/9 when in the UK it should read 9/1

    can anyone help please?

    Hi have you tried this
    Down the bottom you will see More Calendars
    Click on it and scroll down to UK put a tick in it
    Also make sure the USA one is unticked
    That should bring up the date and month in the right order you want it
    Hope that helps
    Let us know how it goes

    Have you made sure your Region setting is correct?

    Type region in the search box and select "Region and Language Settings"

    Make sure United Kingdom is selected.
