Change Date Format on HTC One M8
Thor, Rushell, Eng
Hello and welcome to VisiHow. In this video, we are going to show you how to change the date format on an HTC One M8.
To begin, turn the phone on by pressing the Power button located on top of the phone.
Once the phone has been activated, we will see the Lock screen.
To unlock the phone, swipe the screen upwards.
Once the phone has been unlocked, we will see the Home screen, and at the bottom of the screen will be several icons.
We now need to find the Settings menu. To do that, we need to swipe the Notification panel down.
To do that, start at the top of the screen, and swipe down.
Now, the Notification panel has appeared.
We want the icon at the top right-hand corner of the screen.
It is a white cog icon. This is the Settings icon.
Press down on the icon, and it will open the "Settings" menu.
It says "Settings" at the top left corner of the screen.
Now, let's scroll down to the "PHONE" section.
This section has the word "PHONE" in the gray bar.
Scroll down just a bit to find the "Date & time" option.
Next to those words is an icon of a calendar with the number "8" inside.
Press down on the "Date & time" option, and it will open that menu.
We want the option at the bottom that says, "Choose date format".
We can see the current format just underneath that. On this example, it is Day/Month/Year.
Press down on this section.
We now have a number of different options.
We have the option to include actual words, including the actual day and written name of the month or first few letters of the month name.
We also have something more concise.
These are the formats at the top, which are just numbers.
Choose the option desired by tapping on it.
It will select that format and return to the previous menu.
We can see at the bottom of the screen that the new format is there.
We can have a look at this on the Lock screen by pressing the Power button on top of the phone.
This will make the phone sleep. Then turn it back on again to activate it.
Now, we can see the new date format just below the time.
Therefore, we have successfully changed the date format. To change it again, simply repeat the process.
Press down on "Choose date format" at the bottom of the "Date & time" menu.
Then select a format that appeals to you.
This concludes our tutorial on how to change the date format on an HTC One M8.
