Date entry and display in Windows 10

by documentaryman / August 4, 2015 8:50 AM PDT

Working with dates in Windows 10 is impossible. If I enter mm/dd/yy in Quicken (for example), it gets changed to mm/yy. Other programs have problems too. I'd go back to W8 but that is impossible. Anyone else have this problem or better found a solution?

I write apps.

And my app controls the date input, not the OS. If Quicken is broke, it's Quicken that needs to fix their app.

If it worked in 8, there's always a way back. However you do get clients that burned all roads back and you work with them to order restore media or other.

Microsoft or Quicken?

Are you saying that the Windows 10 date and time format settings that you've chosen aren't accepted by Quicken? So Quicken needs driver updates?

I'm wondering because a keyboard problem I'm having, I have now realized, has to do with HP not updating the drivers yet for Windows 10.

I'm using Quicken 2013 w/7 and 10 & it shows MM/DD/YYYY

In reply to: Microsoft or Quicken?

Isn't that what you want? Maybe you have a different version of Quicken? I also have Quicken 2015, but it's not currently installed. If I remember though when I tested it, it showed the same date format. One thing I do when changing a date is to click on the calendar icon in the date field, then click on the date I want.

Good luck.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
