When Friday replaces time or date placeholders, it uses the system's time/date formats (ie, the formats you've chosen in Control Panels/Regional Settings). It uses the short date format.

You can alter this default by adding the following to the [App] section of FRIDAY.FQA:

DateFormat=Long Date
TimeFormat=Long Time

to return the Long time/date formats you've chosen in Start, Settings, Control Panel, Regional Settings.

You can also experiment with the Regional Settings Time/Date formats until you get one that suits your needs, then select and copy it into FRIDAY.FQA. For example:


In Regional settings, choose a sample format then click Apply to see an example of what it looks like.
