Does somebody know how to register tasks in the Alarm & Clocks applet (Windows 8 or 10) from a Windows Form application.

Thanks

Hi saige.

No, that one if for a Windows Store App.

As I stated in my question, what I want is to program the same feature, but from a standard Windows Forms Application. I already have an alarm feature built into one of my applications, but some users are tired of getting alarms from many different places.

Outlook has its alarms, Windows 8/8.1/10 apps use the Alarms & Clock feature built into the system (the one described in your link), some applications (my own included) have their own alarms, all coming in different ways through different interfaces. Since the Alarms & Clocks comes with the OS, many users suggested that I send my own alarms through that feature.

Thanks anyway for looking into the matter.
