PDB Helpdesk: Regional Settings|
By Thiravudh Khoman
In the December 30, 1998 issue of the Post Database, reader Vanisha Tanwani asked a question about changing calendar formats from Thai to English. The response was to modify the settings under the "Date" tab under "Regional Settings" in "Control Panel".
Readers may be interested to know that even when running the Thai versions of Windows 95/98, it is possible to change the default regional settings from "Thai" to one of the various "English" settings. I manage a number of computers installed with both Thai and English versions of Windows 95/98. Setting the regional setting to say "English (United States)" (figure 1) on all computers not only provides a degree of standardization, but also provides more date and time formats than the "Thai" setting (figure 2).
