Reg hack for short date style

By Bra-k ·
I want to know if there is a reg hack to set the default of the short date style, found under the regional settings, date, tab to make it set at "mm/dd/yyyy" for all users that login, instead of having to change it for every user individually as they login. NT as a default sets it at "mm/dd/yy" and I want it set at a four digit year for everyone.

This is on a per user basis only. Make the change on your computer and export the registry key to a .reg file. Include this file in a login script for all users.

Yes this can be done in a script to all workstations too.
The settings are stored in the user's profile so changing the setting in the .default user will chatch all new profiles.
You can give your self system permissions and load profiles using reg.exe from the resource kit and then change the setting in each profile in batch. You can do this remotely too.

I use this technic all the time to remap all drives and printers stored in every profile on every workstation when I move servers around.

The reg settings are:

REGEDIT4

[HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\International]
"sShortDate"="M/d/yyyy"
"sLongDate"="dddd, MMMM dd, yyyy"


AN

REGEDIT4

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\International]
"sShortDate"="M/d/yyyy"
"sLongDate"="dddd, MMMM dd, yyyy"
