I believe you are looking at a Nautilus display of a directory.  I
looked and did not see a configuration item for Nautilus to change the
format of the date/time.  If no one else has a suggestion perhaps file
an rfe.

However in a text window many of us use "ls -l" to list files in
directories. The default for an ls listing is a 24 hour clock for
recently touched files.

In addition ls has an option "--time-style=STYLE" that 
lets you do more than the default.

There are other file/directory viewers.  Others can discuss their
favorite and the advantages.
