Take advantage of Cortana
Most people have become accustomed to interacting with a smartphone digital assistant, but rarely make use of them on a PC. Microsoft’s digital assistant may not have the clout of Siri or Google Assistant, but it’s actually quite effective in providing contextual reminders about appointments, meetings, and deadlines. If you feel uncomfortable talking to your PC, you don’t have to. Cortana accepts text input as well, so you can manually ask it to remind you to buy eggs from the grocery store. You can even choose to have recurring reminders, but obviously this is more useful for less frequent occurrences than paying your monthly bill.
