How do I display the full (i.e., unabbreviated) date?

Author f you are working in a programming language such as Python, you can use the built-in date and time functions to display the full date.

If you want to display the full date, including the day of the week, month, and day of the month, there are a few different approaches you can take depending on the context. Here are three options:

  1. Using the date command: If you are working in a terminal or command prompt, you can use the date command to display the current date. By default, the date command will display the abbreviated form of the month and day of the week (e.g., "Fri Jan 6"). However, you can use the --date option to specify a different format for the date. For example, to display the full month and day of the week, you can use the following command: date +"%A %B %d". This will display the full names of the day of the week and month, as well as the day of the month (e.g., "Friday January 06").

  2. Using a programming language: If you are working in a programming language such as Python, you can use the built-in date and time functions to display the full date. For example, in Python you can use the datetime module to retrieve the current date and time, and then use the strftime method to format the date as a string. For example:

from datetime import datetimenow = datetime.now()full_date = now.strftime("%A %B %d")print(full_date)

This will display the full names of the day of the week, month, and day of the month (e.g., "Friday January 06").

  1. Using a browser or operating system: If you are working in a browser or operating system, you may be able to customize the date format through the settings or preferences. For example, in Windows you can go to the "Date and Time" settings and select a different date format, including one that displays the full names of the day of the week and month. In a browser, you may be able to use JavaScript to retrieve the current date and format it as a string using the toLocaleDateString method. For example:
let full_date = new Date().toLocaleDateString('en-US', { weekday: 'long', month: 'long', day: 'numeric' });console.log(full_date);

This will display the full names of the day of the week and month, as well as the day of the month (e.g., "Friday January 06").

If you want to control the format of Date/Time data in Input you need to make changes to the Regional Settings application in the Control Panel in Windows itself.

There's no such thing as a Regional Settings application. Could you possibly assist me in locating this by providing a detailed, step-by-step guide?

This will depend on the version of Windows you are using. In Windows10: Click on 'PC Settings'; Click on 'Time and Language'; Scroll down, and under Related settings click on 'Date, time, and regional formatting'; Scroll down and under Regional format data click on 'Change data formats'. You can then format the date as you require.
There is an alternative setting: under Regional format data above, scroll a little further and under Related settings click on 'Additional date, time and regional settings' and there are alternatives for setting dates.
