If you’re required to use Outlook at work, you know how how user unfriendly it can be. You can use Task Scheduler in Windows to do the same thing. Here’s how to create reminder messages in Windows without Outlook or a third party program.

Note: This works in all versions of Windows – XP and higher.

Click Start and type: Task Scheduler. Hit Enter.
