Instead of using a calendar couldn't you simply create a basic task in Windows Task Scheduler to open up a text or image file with a message on it once a month?
That is a good idea,
I use a bit of software called alway sync, it is really good, it syncs files from the computer to the Nas. the USB is a small pen drive that I use for documents, I back it up to DVD and NAS using the sync software, but because the drive and DVD for that matter is not always in use, I do not want to do it automatically.
I could set it to do it when I plug the drive in, but the problem is, then it tries to sync any drive that is plugged in with that drive letter
The strange thing is I turned on the computer this morning and on the lock screen, the event is there on the calendar, but when I open the calendar itself, it is not.
I did think about using Alexa to remind me, but that would not work either, I want something to pop up on the screen and say, do this.
Thanks to all that replied
