Class: Clock Format & resolution tutorial with Links.
Difficulty: Beginner To Intermediate, Some Linux Knowledge required.
Time: Situational, depending on how you want to set it up.
Desirability: Essential if you wish to change the default 24HR format to 12HR or vise versa.

How To Change The Clock Settings 12/24HR,Date,Day
Here is how to change your clock setting between 12H / 24H Format, as well as Date,Day of the Week, Ect.
Right click the clock in the user bar & click on settings.
You will see the clock format box with % & a letter following the % sign.
In order to change the format you must choose a corresponding letter for the Format that you Desire.
After editing the clock format box, close it & the result should be immediate.

%R for 24H format
%X for 12H format
%D gives you the Date
%A gives you day of the Week

Also you can try different combos if you want to display the day ,month, ect.The Order that you arrange them in, Is the Order in which it will be displayed.
Ex= %X %D =gives you the date after the time = 06:37:24 PM 04/10/2010
Ex= %X %A =gives you day of the week after time = 06:37:24 PM Saturday
Ex= %A %x %X =gives you day of the Week,Date,Time = Saturday 04/10/2010 06:37:24 PM

If you wish for the Tooltip Popup Message to differ, The settings can Also be Edited for the Tooltip Format in the same way.
