How to make Outlook Calendar reminders stay on top in Windows 7



Microsoft Outlook is one of the most widely used email and calendar programs by both businesses and individuals. Its convenient user interface and wide range of features make it a popular choice for managing important emails, meetings, and tasks. However, Outlook's calendar reminders may not always remain on top for users on Windows 7, meaning that users may miss important notifications.

This article will explain how IT administrators can configure Outlook calendar reminders to stay on top in Windows 7. The article will discuss the steps required to configure Outlook to ensure that calendar reminders appear on the top of your Windows 7 desktop, even when other programs are running in the background.

The first step for IT administrators is to ensure that Outlook is installed and set up correctly. This can be done by double-clicking the Outlook icon on the Windows 7 desktop and following the setup wizard to configure the program.

Once Outlook is set up, IT administrators must open the Outlook Options window. This can be done by clicking the “File” menu and then selecting “Options”. In the “Options” window, click on the “Advanced” tab and then select the “Reminders” option.

The next step is to check the “Show Reminders on Top” checkbox. This will ensure that all calendar reminders will appear on the top of your Windows 7 desktop, even when other programs are running in the background.

For IT administrators who want to customize the way reminders are displayed, they can do so by clicking on the “Settings” button. This will open up a new window which will allow IT administrators to customize the way reminders appear on their Windows 7 desktop.

Once the settings are configured, IT administrators should click “OK” to save the changes. This will ensure that Outlook calendar reminders will always stay on top in Windows 7, regardless of what other programs are running in the background.

In addition to configuring the Outlook options, IT administrators can also use the Windows 7 taskbar to ensure calendar reminders stay on top. This can be done by right-clicking the Outlook icon in the taskbar and selecting “Pin to Taskbar”. This will ensure that Outlook always remains on top of the taskbar, even when other programs are running in the background.

Finally, IT administrators should ensure that Outlook calendar reminders are set to appear in the Windows 7 Notification Area. This can be done by clicking the “Start” menu and then selecting “Control Panel”. In the Control Panel, select the “Notification Area Icons” option and then check the “Show Reminders” checkbox. This will ensure that Outlook calendar reminders will appear in the Windows 7 Notification Area, even when other programs are running in the background.

By following the steps outlined above, IT administrators should be able to configure Outlook calendar reminders to stay on top in Windows 7. This will ensure that Outlook calendar reminders will always remain visible, even when other programs are running in the background. This will help ensure that users do not miss important notifications, which can lead to missed meetings or tasks.
