How to Turn On or Off Lock Screen Alarm, Reminder, and VoIP Notifications in Windows 10

information   Information
The lock screen is the screen you see when you lock your PC (or when it locks automatically after you haven't been using it for a while). The lock screen will also show at startup, and when you are signed out and idle for one minute. You will need to dismiss the lock screen to be able to see the sign in screen and sign in to Windows. Users can dismiss the lock screen using touch, the keyboard, or by dragging it up with the mouse.

Your account's lock screen will show alarms, reminders, and incoming VoIP calls notifications by default.

This tutorial will show you how to turn on or off showing alarms, reminders, and incoming VoIP calls notifications on the lock screen for your account in Windows 10.
