Changing the type of calendar used by Windows

When you choose a locale for the format of the date, time, currency, and measurements, Windows automatically changes the calendar to match your locale choice. However, some regions support multiple calendar types, and you might want to choose a type different from the one Windows selects.

  1. Open Region and Language by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking Clock, Language, and Region, and then clicking Region and Language.

  2. Click the Formats tab, and then click Additional settings.

  3. Click the Date tab.

  4. Under Calendar, in the Calendar type list, select a calendar type.
