Many improvements were introduced in the release of Windows 11, including a revamped Start menu, a new Settings app, Android support, and more. In addition, Windows 11 ships with the region-specific default date and time format selected during Windows 11 setup.
Windows 11 by default has a time format in a 12-hour format. If you're happy with these default options, you don't need to make any adjustments.
However, some users are a little confused and find it difficult to change the time format to a 12 or 24-hour format due to all the new changes in Windows 11.
And if you prefer to use the 12- or 24-hour time format display on your taskbar, you can change it as in the following guide.
