How to add appointments or reminders on Windows 10 system tray

If you have multiple appointments every single day, the best way to organize or manage them is to note them down or use a calendar app to keep a track of all the appointments that you have daily. Fortunately, you can find a number of Calendar apps and services for Windows, Android, and iOS, where you can keep a track of all the appointments or other tasks that you have. If you use a Chromebook, there is no doubt, Google Calendar is the subtle option for you. But, if you are on Windows, which most people are, Microsoft also has its own Calendar app, where you can manage all your upcoming appointments and tasks.

You can also get hands-on the Microsoft Outlook app to see or add new appointments to your Microsoft account, and see the added appointments any time and anywhere. Furthermore, if you are using Windows 10, and you want to add an appointment or task, you don’t even need to open your web browser, or open the Calendar app on your computer. You can do that with just a single click. This can be useful if you are sitting at your office using your own laptop, and you have to book appointments back to back. Apart from just adding new appointments, you can also modify the existing appointments, delete or view the appointments.

So, without any further delay, let’s get started with, how you can add, delete, view or modify appointments or reminders on Microsoft right from the desktop.
