HI all, does anyone know if/how to make the alt+shft+D timestamp function create yyyymmdd hhmmss please?

If not is there another way to do it?

Or does anyone know of a clipboard manager with such a function

thanks

Evernote uses the Windows "short date" and "short time" formats, concatenated to form the timestamp string. If you're willing to use that throughout Windows, you can change it yourself:

* Control Panel

* Clock, Language, and Region

* Change the date, time, or number format

* Additional Settings button

* Time tab: change the Short Time format to "hhmmss"

* Date tab: change the Short Date format to "yyymmdd"

 

You may need to restart Evernote before the change takes pace: do it using File / Exit.

 

If you're not willing to use these settings globally throughout Windows, you might look into a third-party program like AutoHotKey to do this. I'm prety sure that other users on the forum have done it.

Well, if we are talking about change the date, time format in Windows, the below works for me.  You have to update the short date and time formats.  I made the change some time back and it has worked since.  If Phase Express, you can pretty much make the format what you want.
