      That’s not the result I get. When I use July 31, 2019 and December 31, 2019, I get exactly 5 months/153 days, as expected.

        Same as Larry, on both 1803 and 1903 Pro x64 editions.  (Not tested on 1809 because, well, I skipped that one entirely.)

        All MS Store apps are fully updated, might that make a difference?

          I take that back, tried juggling the end date back a day (the time zone you are on makes a difference) and repro’d the bug.

          Someones already checked in a merge request with the fix on the Calc app on github, might be in the store very soon if accepted.

            Busted.

            I tested it from a weird time zone.

      Someone already submitted a fix to Microsoft on GitHub and the PM for Calculator has looked at it… will probably be merged in to the next release of Calculator.

      If nothing else, it shows big upsides that would come if Microsoft open-sourced more of Windows.

      613,566,756 weeks to the end of the year plus 3 weeks in January would be acceptable to we recalcitrant Windows 7 users!

      Things like this just make you wonder what more crucial bugs slumber in Windows and quietly interfere with basic daily functionality… :-/
