Time format on Windows 8 Welcome screen (before logging in)

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I have my time format set to 24-hour time. Unfortunately, the change wasn't carried over to the welcome screen that displays the space needle and all that other stuff (btw, any way to change that?).

Unless I'm missing something, I don't see an option for me to adjust that anywhere.

ETA: The lockscreen, however, is displaying 24-hour time format.

I always seem to ask the impossible questions, lol.

Already done that. Like I said, it appears 24-hour in the task bar and the lock screen. Just not the initial welcome screen where I press Ctrl + Alt + Del.

Only solution I have found so far is a registry hack:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\SystemProtectedUserData\(YOURSID)\AnyoneRead\LocaleInfo

Replace (YOURSID) with your user SID

Change 'Clock' to '24HourClock'
Change 'TimeFormat' to 'HH:mm'

Ah! I'll give it a shot! Everything else is 24H, I don't understand why this wouldn't be the same.

Actually, I'll look for that first before going the Registry route! I'll let you guys know.
