Date Format - Why no dashes or slashes?

I have tried numerous times to change the date format. Within the past year, my Quicken Deluxe began displaying dates such as DDMMYYY. This is very hard to read. I prefe MMM-DD-YYYY or 08/15/22. I have tried resetting the Windows 11 Short Date format but that does not work. What other choices are available?

    Works for me.
    Here is my Win 11 settings, it was the same in Win10:
    It shows this way in Quicken:

    I don't know if you can get MMM-DD-YYYY, but you can definitely get MM-DD-YYYY.

    If you use dashes as the date delimiter, it breaks being able to use the + and - keys to increment/decrement the date in the Quicken date field. If you use +/- to increment dates, I recommend you use slashes as the date delimiter. 

    So Christmas would be 12/25/2022 instead of 12-25-2022.
