Wrong date format on new Desktop app eg. 9/27/19 but my settings on .com and laptop are eg.27/9/19. How to align?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Hello Bill; how are you today?
This should be easy enough to correct. Just go to your account's settings page and change your 'Date Format' to your desired one: https://www.dropbox.com/account
The date format on your computer is handled by its OS so I'd suggest searching the web for a way to do this - depending on the operating system your computer is on that is.
Let me know if you have any additional questions @Bill F.17 ; I'll be happy to follow up!
The problem is the correct date format (DD/MM/YYYY) is shown on my dropbox.com settings - and my PC .
In the new Dropbox desktop App it shows as (MM/DD/YYYY) like this

I would appreciate your feedback
Thanks for the immediate response Bill!
Would it be OK if I sent you an email to your Dropbox associated address so we can have a further look into this?
I'm only asking as I was just able to re-pro on a Windows machine here on my end and I would like to bring this under the attention of our experts.
Thanks for your report!
Thanks for your cooperation Bill!
I just sent you a brief message so we can look into this further.
Take a look at your email's inbox and we'll pick this up from there.
Is there a solution to this problem please? I am finding it impossible to work effectively because my all my settings are set to show the correct date - English UK - and have never been changed. When I go into the Desktop UI everything is showing with a US format which is totally alient to me and is very confusing.
I can reproduce this on Mac as well (MacOS 10.14.6, Dropbox v82.4.155). Dropbox.com set to DD/MM/YYYY, MacOS set to DD/MM/YYYY but Dropbox Desktop app showing MM/DD/YYYY (also Dropbox.com shows 24-hour time, MacOS is set to 24-hour time, but Dropbox Desktop app shows 12-hour time)
