How to enable custom notifications in Windows Vista, 7 and 8

Something I like to do in Windows is enable my own custom notifications to tell me when I have something planned on that date. Sure, you could set an alarm, but this is so much cooler. What this does is makes a dialog box, opens a program or sends an email at a certain time or event.

NOTE: You must be logged in as an administrator or have the administrator password to preform these steps!

  1. Go into Control Panel –> System and Security –> Administrative tools
  2. From the list, double-click Task Scheduler and enter the password or click “Yes”
  3. After the program opens, click Create Basic Task.
  4. Follow the on-screen instructions. It’s pretty easy to do now.

There you go! You now have your own custom notifications in Windows. Sure, you could set an alarm or even code a program to do this, but it’s easier to just follow these steps! Smile
