Hi,
Is it possible to set calendar times to a 24 hour clock?
I find it particularly difficult around midday and midnight to understand the old fashioned AM and PM business.
Thanks

Moving to Calendar forum where those most likely to be knowledgeable on this question are likely to see it.

For my Ubuntu 18.04.4 Linux that would be the operating systems Settings application.

Then Details > Date & Time > Time Format. Set it to 24-Hour.

Restart Thunderbird and you are all set.

Old fashioned :?:
Linux Desktop - AMD Athlon(tm) II X3 455 3.3GHz | 8.0GB RAM | GeForce GT 630
Windows Notebook - AMD A8 7410 2.2GHz | 6.0GB RAM | AMD Radeon R5
