    Alarms & Clock annoyance


    I have reminder alarms set for 10:30 AM and PM every day. That part works as it should. But when I click on the alarm notification symbol and am given a choice to dismiss, clicking on that stops the sound but also brings up the alarm screen. Is there any way to keep that screen from opening? Anybody would think clicking on "Dismiss" would close everything related to that particular alarm until time for it to do its job again.

    I just tried it and when I click on X Dismiss it goes away, no alarm screen.

    Then I can't imagine what's causing it on my system. Thanks for letting me know.

    Try the usual DISM and SFC commands.

    Open a Elevated Command Prompt:


    1. Click Start
    2. Type cmd
    3. Right click on Command Prompt at top of window and select Run as Administrator


    Run these commands in sequence from a Elevated Command Prompt window, up to 3 times until you get a complete clean run, no errors:

    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup
    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
    SFC /scannow

    Don't clear the Command Prompt window by entering cls at any time. When you are done, right click on the Command Prompt Title bar, click on Edit then Select All. Click on Edit then Copy.

    Open a post in this thread, click on the code icon (#) then paste the data you copied between the [CODE][/CODE] tags.

    Ztrucker, here it is...

    Verification 100% complete.
    
    Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations.
    
    C:\WINDOWS\system32
    I always get reported corruptions with SFC /scannow since I customize my start menu in Open-Shell and delete some folder and file shortcuts that SFC objects to not finding and puts back. Running it the second time always comes up clean. I didn't rerun the DISM commands, but can go back and do that if you think I should. The DISM series and SFC are always run on this PC whenever I clean up files after a Windows update.

    Everything looks clean, no help there.

    What version/build do you have? Mine is 2004 19041.331

    Just tried it again. When the alarm pops, this is what I get:

    I click on the X Dismiss and it goes away. Is that what you are doing?

    That's exactly what I'm doing. Sound stops and the notification goes away, but then this pops up:

    I'm also running the latest version of 2004, but this has been happening for at least a couple of years.

    Maybe uninstall the Alarms & Clock App then download and reinstall it?

    Do this from a Administrator Powershell Window:

    Get-AppxPackage *windowsalarms* | Remove-AppxPackage

    This will uninstall Alarms and Clock. To reinstall it for the same Administrator Powershell Window:

    PowerShell -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted -Command "& {$manifest = (Get-AppxPackage *WindowsAlarms*).InstallLocation + '\AppxManifest.xml' ; Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $manifest}"

    I'll do that, but first want to try something else I should have done earlier. That is to set an alarm on one of my other PCs to check that it works as it should. That may rule out a possible setting or installed program that could be causing a problem. I'll post the outcome.
