3. Choose "24-hour format" from the dropdown by "Time Format" to change your time settings to the 24-hour clock (Military Time), so "1.00pm" now displays as "13:00."

4. Choose "mm/dd/yy" from the dropdown by "Date Format" to change your date settings so "07/04/2022" now displays as "07/04/22" then click "Update."
