As you can see above, I chose hh:mm tt in Short time, because it displays 12-hour format, but if you use: “HH” instead of “hh” you get the time in 24-hour format.
If you like to display your name before date and time then you can, simply change Long or Short time settings to these: “tt hh:mm:ss”, you’ll get your name to the left side of the time.
Note: I entered my name after both AM symbol and PM symbol, it will not alter anything, if you entered something wrong while changing these values, click Reset to get the default settings.

You can also display the day (Sun or Sunday etc.) as I did in the screenshot, simply enter “ddd” to get “Sun”, “dddd” to get “Sunday”.
