Quickly remove time from date time format permanently in Excel

If you have a list of date time formatting cells, and you need to remove the time from the date time cells permanently and only keep the date format content in cells, for example, to remove 12:11:31 from 1/21/2017 12:11:31 and make it exactly 1/21/2017. Normally, you may have to take some time to create a formula to remove the timestamp from the cells. Can we have the built-in formula for such purpose in Excel? With Kutools for Excel’s Commonly-used Formulas, you can quickly use the built-in formula to remove timestamp permanently from the date time formatting in Excel.
