Changing date/time on Zorin 16.3 Pro desktop

Through endless fruitless, cryptically useless “tips” Google searches on how to change/update the desktop clock,
Mine is a relatively "generic" ie.. Default install (Lenovo IdeaCentre 300S, with M.2 Wireless/Blue Tooth adapter - Atheros AR5006X chipset for the hardware geeks)
Sheer dumb luck has presented this user with a solution to his dilemma; unknown if the correct linux-lingo is being used… but, be that as it may.
First, left-mouse-click (i.e., for right-handers, index finger, for left-handers, methinks middle finger… dunno… that this writer is extremely right-handed… left hand is little more than a useful idiot, can only guess for “lefties”)
Left-click on the Zorin icon (extreme lower left of screen):

Up will pop a… block (dare we call it a window??)

what is presented in the left column:
“Accessories”, “Chrome Apps” (should some of you have figured out to download/install Google Chrome, vs. simply staying with the pre-loaded Firefox browser), “Games”, Graphics”, “Internet’, “Office”, “sound & Video”, “System Tools”, Utilities”. (ignore that for now)

In the right column of that same window:

A human bust Icon (with your user name next to it),
then, “Home’, “Desktop”, etc. etc.
Left-click (index finger?) on your user name: (where the fun begins)

Popping up, and superimposed, will pop a “users” window:
Left Column: “Wi-Fi”, “Network”, “Bluetooth” (where applicable)), “Background”, “Notifications” etc. etc. (scroll down, past all of that stuff)
While still “hovering' over said left column:
Scrolling down should bottom-out with: “Region &Language”, “Accessibility”, “Users”, “Default applications”, “Date & Time”, "About" (at bottom).

Double-click: “Regions and Language":
the rest should be self-explanatory (if not, pack up your gear and find a friendly Zorin/Ubutu(debian) guru... or let them know there's cold beer in the fridge)

BTW: “Input Sources” allows you to assign/enable multiple keyboard layouts ( in this case, for this writer, German and Polish)… the “active” keyboard layout will be indicated in the extreme lower-right of your desktop to the left of date/time, power “button”, speaker”, “blue tooth” icon (maybe?), and Wi-Fi signal strength (or network/LAN) indicator. (in this case, "en", for english - doh!)…

Below, "Regions & Language":

“Date & Time”; also, should be self explanatory, (or, stock up the 'fridge)

Footnote: During installation, and setting time zone, I dragged & dropped the time zone over to what appeared to be Poland (my current location); however, somehow, “Budapest” was understood… resulting in my desktop date/time clock being in Hungarian… DOH!… which led to this little “adventure” (many of which are most assuredly to come)

This little snippet was written with LibreOffice Writer; which, after 20 years of MSOffice2003…
na ja...
Cheers, and good lucki

This isn't a problem, once you finish the initial configuration you can change time and date options on the settings, including the time zone, there's no need to reinstall, search for guides or other. To invert mouse buttons go on Settings > Mouse & Touchpad > invert Primary Button.
