Thanks for the reply but, the link is for Ubuntu Mate not Sparky. I know in Ubuntu Mate, changing the Date/Time format can be done using dconf-editor. What I'm looking for is a way to change this in Sparky Mate.

  Method #1, described in the first paragraph, is specific to Mate Desktop' not to Ubuntu ...

Well then the obvious answer, is that you install dconf-editor and use it ...

Figured it out. With dconf-editor go to: org-mate-panel-objects-object 0-prefs, change the format to "custom" and then enter your custom string in "custom-format string.       "10:55AM   Tuesday   26 April 2022"

I'm glad, you were able to fix the problem.
