How to modify regional settings in Windows 11

The region you select in Windows is essential. Some apps and data use your region format settings to adjust their clock, dates, and times.

When you set the Windows display language, the region format settings are based on the language and location associated with your display language. For example, you may be located in a particular region but want your apps and systems to use a different notation.

In that case, you can manually select a different format in Windows. The steps below show you how to do that in Windows 11.
