  1. Why can't Cortana set a reminder for every 20 minutes to leave my pc?


    It gave me the option of monthly weekly daily, so obviously totally misunderstanding what every 20 minutes means. I though it would be a simple task, and I'm sure I've seen it done on tv. In fact it hasn't really been able to help with much.

  4. Why can't Cortana set a reminder for every 20 minutes to leave my pc?

    cortana does not remind me

    Hi David,

    Welcome to the Microsoft Community.

    To assist you better I want you to answer for the below queries.


    • Are you using Cortana in PC or in phone?

    • Check if a notification about the reminder is shown on the Notification screen on the Taskbar?

    • Does Cortana have any other issues that you've noted, other than reminders?


    Meanwhile I suggest you to try the setting and
    check if it helps.

    Tyr to set up your "places" in the settings, for example if you want a reminder when you get home, you have to tell it where home is.

    For example if I wanted Cortana to remind me to look left when I cross Waterloo bridge I would have to have set up Waterloo bridge as a place.



    Also, try setting a time as a reminder and check if that works.



    Thank You.
