How to make the Outlook reminders pop up on top while using computer?

While you are working at other applications or websites and minimize the Outlook window, you maybe miss some reminders in Outlook. So how to make the Outlook reminders pop up always on the top of screen while using computer for dismissing any reminders? In this article, I introduce a VBA code to handle it.

    The VBA supplied did not work for me with Outlook 2013, but this did:

    Private Sub Application_Reminder(ByVal Item As Object)

    If TypeOf Item Is AppointmentItem Then
    MsgBox "Appointment ", vbSystemModal, "Outlook Macro"
    End If

    End Sub

    I was running into similar problems,

    I face this so often that I wrote a simple program called OutlookRemindersOnTop will keep bringing the reminders window on top and also show a windows notification if it finds the window

    Hope it helps and it works great for me if it helps you can download it from
    https://1drv.ms/f/s!AmaHAXM9ZhPhaYN972FkhyTLHO8

    it requires .net 4.5 or 4.0 i can recompile it to 2.0 if there is interest.


    Hope it helps

    Thank you so much - this has been driving me crazy missing important meetings/time related tasks because my reminders do NOT show on top. Reading all the threads about this shows me MS do not really care that they changed that at all. Now I am getting a reminder pop up and when I click that it takes me to the MS reminder pane - just brilliant! One question, is there any chance that the pop up box could be a different colour than blue? I would love a bright pink or red or green so the reminder is shouting at my face lol.
