Create recurring alarm with task scheduler

Recommended Posts

Maybe you need to take medicine at a certain time every day. Maybe you just want to be reminded to get up and move around so you won’t “grow to the desk.” Whatever the reason, you can use the task scheduler in Windows 7 to create a recurring alarm. Here’s how:

  • Click the Start button and in the Search box, type task scheduler and press Enter
  • In the right Actions panel, click Create Task
  • On the General tab, type a name for the task, such as Take medicine
  • Click the Triggers tab.
  • Click the New button
  • Select On a schedule for the “Begin the task” field
  • Select Weekly and check the days of the week that are applicable
  • Check Repeat task every and select the time frame (such as 4 hours) from the dropdown list
  • Select a duration of 12 hours or 24 hours or whatever time frame you need to spread it over
  • Check the Enabled box
  • Click OK
  • Click the Actions tab to pick what actions you want to take place to alert you (such as displaying a message on the screen)
  • Click OK
