Changing Time format

Sun Jul 07, 2019 3:39 pm

Hey again, so I'm wondering, is it possible to change the time format that displays on the Raspbian desktop to 12-hour instead of military time?

Right click on the time and select 'digital clock settings'
Change the format to e.g. %r

For more options use 'man 3 strftime' in a terminal window.
