On my system, I right-clicked the clock. I selected "Adjust Date & Time".
Then I clicked the "Date and Time" tab. In the "Time format" drop down
box, I selected pH:MM:SS AMPM.
Now my clock is in 12 hour mode. For example it shows 5:00 am, and later
on it shows 5:00 pm.
This has fixed the time on 3 Dapper susyems here.
