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.

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.
