I have windows 10 and my computer is a Lenovo Yoga 900. When I use adwords editor i can't change start and end dates (neither in campaigns, sitelinks, callouts, etc). I think it's a problem of the resolution of the computer or the setup of the PC, but i can't solve it! Thanks

Try this. Go to Control Panel > Region and Language > Formats. For Short Date, choose any format that represents months as numbers (as opposed to month names); in other words, a format that contains M or MM, but not MMM or MMMM. Hit OK to close the dialog, then close and restart Editor.

 

Editor has a difficulty parsing dates that use non-numeric representation for months.

Once you have started a campaign, the "Start Date" selection option is deactivated. 

 

To change the end date, suggest you use a browser to login to your campaign, try to change it that way.  Just login to your account at google.com/adwords

Thanks for your answer, but i know that. I'm talking about new (or old) campaigns, sitelinks, callouts, and every date that could be changed from the adwords editor. It seems to be a problem with the setup of the PC, because when i select a date it's picked.
