Using Cortana for reminders. Did you know you can tell Windows 10’s new search tool -Cortana to remind you? As long as you type or say ‘Remind me’ at the start of your sentence it will set up a reminder and do the thing requested. For example saying or typing “Remind me to call the bank again in 10 minutes” will set up a prompt to remind you. You will have to confirm that Cortana has it correctly understood to finally set the reminder by saying YES. At the given time, a reminder panel will flash onto your screen. This can be useful to make on the fly reminders and save losing those scraps of paper on your desk and forgetting to do it.
