Is there anyway to change the date format that is used when you look at the
Software Environment/Windows Error Reporting tab?

Or perhaps that is wrong way to approach it.

It sorts the date field using 1st number, that is probably fine in the mm/dd/yy format but it doesn't work in the dd/mm/yy format.
So by default it looks like
Gv5OTTO.jpg

and it never really gets any better. Sorting by type just changes what shows in that column, can't ever get it to show date in format I use.
So anyway to change how it displays first number or am I looking at this from wrong end? its posssible this is just the output of a search.

this isn't really a windows 11 problem, it existed in 10 as well. And probably before that too.

Anyway to output that tab as an excel spreadsheet?

this is my configuration, I've done custom format in the classic Control Panel -> Region

there are many custom formats you can use in there according to individual preferences too .. it is not restricted for long or short date formats, it can be user for both ..

If you change the Regional format to English (United States) before opening System information you'll find that no, it isn't fine in mm/dd/yyyy format either. The months sort in the order Jan, Oct, Nov, Dec, Feb, Mar, etc. (1, 10, 11, 12, 2, 3, etc).

It is not sorting the values in this column as a date at all, it is peforming a plain alpha-numeric sort. I see no way to get a true 'sort by date' until Microsoft. Fix this error in their app. Best to report it on the Feedback Hub and hope they do something about it.

Glad I am not blind. Thanks Bree :)

it needs to sort by dd as if I change dates to format Xploit has, it then sorts by day of the week which is not helpful either
