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
