How to make the YEAR visible in Dolphin's date? [SOLVED]

LM 17.3, KDE, 64 bit In Dolphin I can make the year a file has been created or modified visible but only in the format "mm-dd hh:mm". How can I create the format "yy-mm-dd hh:mm"? I checked Settings/Configure Dolphin but could not find any format settings. Thanks in advance for your helping comments

Re: How to prevent TeamViewer from auto start up?

Thank you so much for your help.
I am actually feeling embarrassed that I did not see the flag in the TeamViewer settings myself. I checked them several times and missed always. Shame on me.
Again thanks.

@catweazel

Thanks for your remark on stability. I was afraid that I will get such an answer.

OK, one cannot have all. I rather have LM 17.3 with an older ARK version than going back to a Windows machine.

@wallaroo I also tested kubuntu about 2 years but decided to use LM for my work-hores PC. From my kubuntu tests I thought that ARK provides a password. However, I never was sure if I remember that correctly and thought, I was wrong when ARK in LM did not have a password. Thanks for your comment. Now...

Re: Need for an zipper SW with password protection [SOLVED]

@ wallaroo Assuming Dolphin is your file manager, try this .. Right-click on the file or directory you want to compress and select 'Compress' -> 'Compress To', select type as 'application/zip' and there you will see an encryption with password option. I tried your proposal as well, however in my cas...

Re: Need for an zipper SW with password protection

I checked with the packet manager and see that p7zip full is installed.

When I use ARK, I can create 7z archives but I never could password protect their content.
Do I make something wrong when using the ARK GUI?
Do I need to password protect the archives always with a command line?
