Quick Tip: Finder Date Format

Here's how you adjust the date format used system-wide on Mavericks.

Go into the "Language and Region" system preference on the Mac.

Switch to the "Date" pane and activate the "Advanced" settings. Now you can configure your preferred system wide date format. For example, I prefer the short format yyyy-mm-dd.

Now applications that use the system date format comply with my odd standard.
