When I upgraded to Quickbooks Desktop Pro 2020, it changed my date format. I would like to reset it so it is mo/day/year

 

Thank you for any help you can offer.

Date Formatting for Quickbooks Desktop Pro

Hello 12Tania,

 

It's awesome to hear that you've upgraded to QuickBooks Desktop 2020. I hope you're enjoying all the new features the program has to offer. I'll include a link of what those are at the end of this response so you can take a look at them all.

 

Like with previous versions of the program, QuickBooks Desktop's date format is based on the date format of your computer. If you're not liking the date format you're seeing, check your Windows settings to make sure you have the one you want selected. Keep in mind that if you have the program installed on multiple computers that you'll want to make sure they're each using the same date format to keep things uniform.

 

That should get you on your way! Here's the article I mentioned: What's new in QuickBooks Desktop 2020

 

Enjoy the rest of your day!

I changed the date format in Windows 10 so that quickbooks pro 2020 would display the dates the way I prefer on my invoices and it caused quickbooks to crash on start up after the password is entered. I switched the windows date format back and quickbooks now starts without crashing. Must be some kind of a bug in QB 2020.
