I believe what "Stan Brown" was saying was;
Setting the Date / Time format in :
"Control Panel" > "Regional and Language Options" > "Customize"
to your desired format i.e. in my case to s.date=dd-mm-yy (e.g. 12-12-09)
time=hh:mm tt (e.g. 9:38 am)
will effect the way Windows displays the short date / time across the WHOLE system
INCLUDING the way "Notepad" prints out it's Date/Time stamp.
*NOTE - Notepad is PROGRAMMED to print out the TIME before the DATE e.g. :
9:10 pm 12-12-09
....and cannot be influenced otherwise without reverse-engineering "notepad.exe".
