sShortDate

HKCU\Control Panel\International

Data type

Range

Default value

REG_SZ

Date format

M/d/yy

Description

Specifies the format used to display dates in short date (numeric) format, such as 6/5/69.

Change method

To change the value of this entry, double-click Regional Options in Control Panel. Click the Date tab, and then make a selection from the Short date format list.

Note

Regional Options in Control Panel links the sDate and sShortDate entries. This ensures the date separator and the date format are synchronized. For example,

sDate 

sShortDate 

Meaning

/

m/d/yy

6/5/69

Setting sTime and sTimeFormat independently in the registry can result in conflicting values. To repair these settings, use Regional Options in Control Panel.

Setting only one value in the registry might not change the date as it appears in applications, because an application can read either sDate or sShortDate.
