  1. Thank you for this information. I found the screen myself, but I was expecting an example between 12:00 and 23:49 to show the difference between 12 and 24 hour time formats. Due to that example being missing, I came to look it up.

  2. Many companies had 24-hour time as the default since the 1970’s. For example, DEC. Microsoft was pandering to the masses by using AM/PM with all its annoyances as the default. Even if that were appropriate, it should have been much easier to turn it off than it has been over the years.
