Default Time Settings. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello there,

    I have about 40 PC'S that are joined to a domain. I have been trying to change the default time format from standard to 24hr format. However, considering that these settings are profile/user specific and these PC's have multiple users logging in to them, I was unable to change the time format for all users. Does anyone have any ideas on how to change this setting for all users without having each user log in and change the time? My Co-workers and I feel like there should be a more simple way of doing this than changing registry settings and exporting a registry file out to the startup folder for all users. Any help would be appreciated, Thank you.
