    Microsoft 365 Outlook ignores my Date & Time format settings


    I live in Switzerland but prefer an English-language UI as:
    • it is my mother tongue
    • it makes it easier to get support
    However, I prefer to use the local (de-ch) conventions for date, time, currency etc. and have configured the WIndows Regional Settings accordingly
    Unfortunately Outlook still insists on using British (en-uk) conventions for columns like "Received". I am aware that I can change the date format in the "View" settings, but there I have to choose between date and time, whereas the default "Best fit" displays both. How can I get Outlook to respect my Regional Settings?

    :)

    Changing Time Format

    Hi Mary,

    There's a possibility that the set up time format in your computer Basic Input/Output System (BIOS) is military time. To have this checked, you can try to reset the time of your computer through Control Panel. See the steps below on how to do
    so:

    • Open Control Panel > Clock, Language, and Region >
      Change date, time, or number formats. This would open the
      Region
      window.
    • From there, click on Additional settings at the bottom part. It will open the Customize Format.
    • Click Reset; then, OK.

    The steps should work; however, if not, we suggest that you contact manufacturer and have the BIOS time checked.

    Let us know what happens after doing the suggestions .
