Popup a reminder message at specific time using a Windows Task Scheduler alternative

Many of us have the habit of checking our calendar every morning before starting our work for the day. We check our schedules and deadlines.

While this is a nice thing to do, do we realize how much much time are we spending on adding these reminders, opening the calendar again and again and keeping track of these deadlines?

You must be wondering, what else can i do? There seems to be no other easy way.

Well, there is. A really easy and fast way. All you have to do is schedule the reminders to pop-up automatically at the scheduled time. How? Using the Notezilla sticky notes app for Windows.

Again, you might ask why do i need to create sticky notes for tasks when i can just schedule the calendar to open whenever i start my PC. There are many apps that let you configure this. In fact, there’s one inbuilt in our Windows PC and is also free- the Task Scheduler.

Let me show you the steps for both these apps to make it more clear.

What is Notezilla?

Notezilla is a professional, elegant & highly rated sticky notes app for Windows & Phones (Android, iOS, iPhone, iPad, Windows Phone, etc.). It can help you organize your life by keeping all the notes, tasks & reminders that you may need when-ever and where-ever you are.

With sticky notes, you hardly have to put effort to take notes, set reminders, etc. Just jot down & move on with your task at hand. Notezilla allows you to create attractive and realistic sticky notes to make the desktop look more colorful and beautiful.

It works smoothly on both phones & tablets.

Scheduling reminder pop-up at specific time using Notezilla

Setting reminders is the core part of Notezilla.

  1. Create a Notezilla sticky note.

2. To set a reminder, right-click on the note title or note toolbar and choose Due Date from the menu. For faster access, press the shortcut key Ctrl+R. Add a reminder to this sticky note.

3. Click OK. The reminder alarm will pop-up at the specified time . You can also set the reminder to repeat at your desired time.

Tip: You can also also run a program automatically at a specific time through these reminders.

Scheduling reminder pop-up at specific time using Task Scheduler

1.Search for ‘Task Scheduler’ in the Windows search bar and open it.

2. Under the ‘Actions’ section, choose ‘ Create Basic Task’.

3. Give your task a name and a description(optional) and click Next.

4. Choose the Trigger frequency. This basically means choosing when you want to start the task. Here, you can also choose to set repeat trigger. Click Next.

5. Choose the action you wish to perform. In this case, it is ‘Display a message (deprecated)’.

6. Click on Finish and you are all set.

To Conclude:

Although the Task Scheduler offers the feature to display a message at specific time or regular intervals, it is a deprecated feature. That means it may or may not function because it is no longer supported by Microsoft.

Even if you still choose to go with it, it has many windows and multiple steps to set up which my take even more of your time and efforts.

Notezilla is therefore more reliable and easy to configure. You create a note, set a reminder and move on with your work. You don’t have to worry about the notes cluttering your desktop, because you have the option to store them safely in folders called memoboards.

So how about giving it a try today. It’s free and also perfectly boosts your productivity by saving your time and efforts!

The best part of Notezilla is that it can sync notes between your mobile and PC or laptop! Therefore, you will get the reminders in your phone as well!

Go download it from the Play store or app store today and sync all your sticky notes with the Windows version of Notezilla.

Run an app automatically at startup/logon using a Windows Task Scheduler alternative

Everyday, when i switch on my PC to start with work for the day, i first check my calendar for deadlines and schedules. I then check my mailbox. Finally i begin with my work.

Doing this used to take a lot of my time as i had to launch these apps everyday and go access my content. But not anymore. I have now found an easy way to schedule these apps to run automatically when i start my system, using the Notezilla sticky notes app for Windows.

Run an app automatically at specific time using a Windows Task Scheduler alternative

We all use certain programs as part of our routine work. We may also have specific work habits related to these apps. For example, someone might have the habit of taking a backup of all the work before breaking for lunch. Or someone would check their calendar the first thing after switching on their PC.

For programs like these, which we access regularly at a specific time, how about scheduling the app to automatically launch at that time.

This article will tell you how to run an app automatically at specific time using the Task Scheduler and an alternative app- Notezilla sticky notes for Windows.

What is Notezilla?

Notezilla is a professional, elegant & highly rated sticky notes app for Windows & Phones (Android, iOS, iPhone, iPad, Windows Phone, etc.). It can help you organize your life by keeping all the notes, tasks & reminders that you may need when-ever and where-ever you are.

With sticky notes, you hardly have to put effort to take notes, set reminders, etc. Just jot down & move on with your task at hand. Notezilla allows you to create attractive and realistic sticky notes to make the desktop look more colorful and beautiful.

It works smoothly on both phones & tablets.

Windows Task Scheduler

Windows task scheduler is a free tool to create and run tasks and is inbuilt in your Windows PC. With this, you can start a program, run commands and execute scripts at a specific time.

Now let us see the steps for both of them.

Using Notezilla

Although Notezilla is a sticky notes app, it can do a lot more than you can imagine. You can schedule to launch any app at a specific time, indirectly, even though not directly.

  1. Create a Notezilla sticky note.

2. Add a reminder to this sticky note.

3. Go the the Advanced tab of this reminder window and choose the option ‘Launch program, document or website.’

4. Type the program name or browse and choose the program and click OK.

5. The reminder alarm will pop-up at the specified time and the program will also launch along with it.

Using the Task Scheduler

1.Search for ‘Task Scheduler’ in the Windows search bar and open it.

2. Under the ‘Actions’ section, choose ‘ Create Basic Task’.

3. Give your task a name and a description(optional) and click Next.

4. Choose the Trigger frequency. This basically means choosing when you want to start the task. Here, you can also choose to set repeat trigger. Click Next.

5. Type or browse the program you wish to launch and click Next.

6. Click on Finish and you are all set.

Our Verdict

Although the Task Scheduler is free and inbuilt in your system, most people aren’t even aware of its existence. It has many windows and multiple steps to configure a task, making it confusing and time consuming.

Notezilla on the other hand is simple and quick to configure under one single window. You might say that how many notes do i keep creating for the multiple programs. And won’t it clutter my desktop unnecessarily?

Well, Notezilla has a memoboard system wherein you can store your sticky notes in different folders.

Here’s another cool thing you can do with Notezilla- schedule a program to run at startup. When you switch on your system, the program will launch.

Although there’s no direct option for this, we do have a simple hack. Just set the reminder time for the sticky note to midnight. So when you turn on your PC in the morning, the reminder will immediately pop-up along with the specified program.

So how about giving it a try today. It’s free and also perfectly boosts your productivity by saving your time and efforts!

Attach pictures to a sticky note in Notezilla for Android & iPhone

With Notezilla phone apps for Android and iOS (iPhone/iPad), you can now attach pictures to a sticky note. They get synced with all your devices including Notezilla for Windows.

We added this feature in March 2020. Just update Notezilla to the latest version from the Play Store or App Store and also the Windows desktop version from our website.

Adding pictures

Here is a short video to check out before reading further:

In the phone app, open the sticky note you want to add pictures in. Click on the link icon on top and you will be able to attach pictures from your gallery or directly click from camera.

The pictures will appear below the title space of the note. You can remove a particular picture from the note by clicking on the cross sign (delete option).

Tap on a particular image and it will expand for a better view.

On desktop

Sync your phone to your Notezilla.net account and this note will pop-up on your desktop.

The earlier version showed pictures inside the sticky note along with the text. Notezilla will now show a thumbnail for pictures. You have to click on the thumbnail and the picture will then expand for you to view.

Sync note

You will also find other options like insert new picture, delete a particular picture, save a picture in your system etc. 

Go back to the note or just click on the thumbnail to type your text. 

Adding pictures in your desktop sticky notes is the same as earlier. Right-click inside a note and select the option to add pictures. You can also drag and drop or copy-paste the pictures into the note.

Note: Notezilla now limits the number of pictures in a single note to three. This is to ensure the speed is unaffected.

This feature is very handy when researching and collecting data on any topic. With sync, you can continue working from anywhere and anytime.

Your desktop also looks refreshing with pictures rather than having sticky notes with plain text. 

Try it today and you will love it for sure.

Go download it from the Play store or app store today and sync all your sticky notes with the Windows version of Notezilla.

Sort lines in a sticky note using Notezilla for Windows

We use sticky notes to record our important data. Since Notezilla allows you to work on sticky notes that are as wide as your display monitor, you can store really long content in them.

Often when we are in a hurry or pasting content from multiple places, we just paste it and decide to reorder it later. But it gets really difficult to sort the lines manually especially if you constantly edit it.

But it is now very easy to sort lines in a Notezilla sticky note. With the latest version of Notezilla, you can sort the lines of a sticky note in an ascending or descending order.
