If you use Outlook for managing tasks, you’re likely painfully aware of Calendar reminders.
Reminders can definitely come in handy for important meetings and as a project management tool, but if you have several calendars connected to your account, you might be getting reminders left and right that you don’t need. Luckily, they’re very easy to turn off.
To turn off Outlook Calendar reminders do the following:
- Go to File > Options > Calendar.
- Under Calendar Options uncheck Default Reminders and click OK.
When you do this, you won’t receive reminders on meetings you’ve accepted that are in your calendar.
If you’ve created reminders for specific emails or tasks, you can also switch all of these off with just one setting in Outlook.
- Go to File > Options > Advanced.
- Under Reminders, make sure that the Show reminders is unchecked.
And if you’re interested in different calendar options for your Windows computer, here are the best calendar apps in the Microsoft Store.
