I have windows XP Pro.

What i want to no is can u set it up to flash up a reminder at a set time on a set day???

I have info that i have to submit every tuesday and thursday but i always seem to forget the thursday!!!

Can i set windows somehow to remind me to do it when im sat at the PC???

No, you cannot use WINDOWS to set reminders.

However, if you have a Calendar or Diary-type program such as Microsoft's Outlook (part of the Office suite) you can use that to set reminders.

I am not sure but I think it can be done using Windows Postit Notes program. It came as part of a dowload pack from MS. I uninstalled it so I am not certain. I will try and find it for you.

click here I think this is the shareware version, but microsft did a "Postit Note Lite" for free.

Occasional reminder to purchase - but a quite useful routine.
