If you have a date/time in A2 and a later one in B2 just subtract, i.e.
=B2-A2
You can now use formatting to display the difference as required, e.g. custom format as [h]:mm to show the difference in hours and minutes, so 2 ½ hours will display as 2:30. If you want to see just minutes, i.e. 150 then custom format as [m]
