I was wondering if anyone knew how to change the format of the clock to 12 hour instead of 24??

Thanks in advance,

Right-click the clock .. select "Digital Clock Settings"

Change:-

Clock format from

%R

to

%I:%M:%S %p

if you don't want the seconds

%I:%M %p

or you could try just
%r

if you want to see ALL available options, run this in a terminal
Code: [Select]
man 3 strftime
