    It's a pity that MSFT doesn't provide enough reasonable non-US formats... event the one that I use in my date and time settings.
    For example I need format like "29-Sep-16 16:01" but there is only "....4:01 PM"

    Actually people need compact formats, and all the "Monday, the 16th of December, 3:47 PM" as well as a set of formats showing the date but not showing time seem to be useless... The usual Microsoft ignorance of user requirements
