GitExtensions Date Column Setting

By default, Git Extensions for Windows will display the commit timestamp as just the number of hours or days prior to now. If you’re like me, you find this sort of information worthless. Telling me something happened 37 days ago is not useful information. Telling me it happened September 15, 2013 at 2:37 pm is much more my style.

To change this setting, select “GitEx Browse” from the Windows Explorer right-click context menu, then Settings -> Settings. Finally, navigate to and uncheck this box:

Ahhh, so much better now!
