Windows 10: Reminders for Windows 10 Calendar Solved

    Reminders for Windows 10 Calendar


    I have just started to use the Windows 10 Calendar app and have set up several 'Test' events with the reminder time set to 15, 30 minutes and 1 hour reminder time. The time for each passes with no indication of a reminder for any of them that I can see. What should they look like and when should the appear?

    Thank you.

    Make sure you have Notifications for Calendar enabled in Settings.

    The notification banner should flow in on the bottom right hand corner for 5 seconds by default...

    You could also assign Sounds for the notifications using the Sounds Applet...

    Thank you.

    That makes sense but I can't find a place in the Settings for Calendar to do that. Could you point me to it?
    My Calendar App version is Version 17.9330.21365.0. It seems to behave differently than the pictures you showed.

    Thanks again.

    Of course! I was looking in settings in Calendar. No wonder I couldn't find it.

    However I don't think that will do what I want. The banner flashes by to quickly for my tired old eyes and brain. I know to to change that so I will stay on longer but that means all other notifications from other sources will also stay on longer --- not good for me. I like the reminders that come from Office's Calendar. It stays on until I see it and kill it -- that's good. I've used it since dirt.

    It looks like the only one of the three apps I will wind up using is People and that's OK.

    Thanks again for your patient help.
