    How do I use task scheduler to setup hourly reminders

    I want to use task scheduler to setup periodic reminders and since I'd no idea how to do this I googled and tried this but no success. So how do I do this. I'm trying to setup a reminder on a hourly or so basis to do exercises for RSI in my hands.
    Appreciate any help

    task scheduler error 2147750704

    Got this error as unfortunately sending an email and displaying a message has been deprecated so the only option is to start a program like msg to display messages.

    Hence tried suggestions here and none of them work for me.

    Seriously this really should be easier and hassle free to do and MS seem to go out of their way to make the simplest of tasks painstakingly difficult!! Really pi@@es me off.

    So unless someone has a solution that's actually been tried and tested this year then best leave it. Life is too short I'll look for an addon from somebody else.

    RemindMe looks like it works a treat and so much easier to use.

    Thank you, great suggestion
