Useless Trick: Personalizing Your Very Own Time Display

6

It’s 1:32pm at the moment but how come my Windows 7 displays 1:32 Chen as follows?

Let’s see what really has been changed to make this.

Go to Region and Language from Control Panel, and click Additional Settings… button at the bottom to open the Customize Format. Then go to Time tab.

Did you see my name listed there as the AM/PM symbols? Yes, that’s the place where you can customize the symbol to make your very own clock display.

To make a joke with someone you like you can try to confuse him/her by switching the AM/PM symbol so that 1:32pm in real shows 1:32am on his/her computer. Is it interesting?

However, if you want to make it seriously as the setting on your computer, be aware of the downside that you may alter your mail client like Outlook to make yourself or other parties confused.
