My coordinate display window in QGIS only shows long lat (minutes and degrees etc.), even though my project CRS is projected.

Does anybody know how to change it so that it displays the projected units? I just want to be able to eyeball the coordinate I am looking at.

Go to File > Properties > General tab. In Coordinate and Bearing Display, set Display coordinate using to Custom projection Units, and Coordinate CRS to the CRS you want to display.
