Can I change the way file dates are displayed

Currently if the dating of a file is within the last so many days(??), dates are shown by their day name. Isn't there an option somewhere to show dates in their numerical calendar format instead? I've looked everywhere I can think of in "Preferences" & can't find it. Maybe I've just missed it, but any direction would be appreciated.

Thanks so much & have a great day!!!

Just turn this option off:

Thanks a bunch!! Just missed it I guess.
