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!
- Go into Control Panel –> System and Security –> Administrative tools
- From the list, double-click Task Scheduler and enter the password or click “Yes”
- After the program opens, click Create Basic Task.
- 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!
