Opening the Outlook reminder window

How do you open the reminder window, if you have closed it without
snoozing/dismissing reminders?

I'm only guessing that the following might work:

- Unload Outlook.
- Change the system clock to before the times for the event triggers.
- Load Outlook.
- Unload Outlook.
- Change the system clock back to now.
- Load Outlook.

If you close outllook and the reload it the reminder window pops up with the
reminders that are still current. What I was meaning is, is there a button or
such in the tool bar that brings the reminder window back (without needing to
close outlook)?

The unload-load probably works only if the calendar event triggers on
the day that you do the load of Outlook. There was no way I could tell
you were asking how to re-view the reminder window on the same day. I
thought more time might've elapsed. So ignore my suggestion.

Since the reminder triggers at looking at the clock, I doubt there is a
means of making it check the trigger again. I'm still using OL2002.
You didn't mention WHICH version of Outlook that you use as it is
possible a later version has more or different features.

How about using the Outlook Today node in the folder list (the root
folder of your message store)? Reminders are attached to calendar or
task items so you could see those items there.

View, Reminders. That will show the window, which only shows reminders that
are due or overdue.

Cheers Ken,
I knew it was very simple as I had done it on my old computer before it died
(I had created a button for easy one click access). Just completely forgot
where it was, and completely missed it when I looked in the view menu.
Thanks again,
Matt

Very easy.
Create a "test" appointment with a reminder that is due to be shown. (For example "test" is within 1 hour from now and its reminder is set for 2 hours beforehand. So the reminder is already due to appear).
The "test" reminder will be pop up together with all the disappeared reminders.
