Edited by Lukward Thomason, Amanda, Eng
Hi, you're watching VisiHow. This is a tutorial on how to set an alarm on Windows 8 computers.
Click the Start menu button in the lower left corner of the screen.
Press the downward-pointing arrow button in the lower left corner of the Start screen.
On our Alarms screen, there are no alarms yet. Let's add an alarm.
Click the plus sign icon in the upper right corner of the screen.
Now let's set the time. In this example, we want the alarm to go off at 9 am. In the rings around the time, the red represents the hour, and the orange represents the minutes.
Click the circle icon attached to the red ring.
Drag the icon until the hour matches what we want for our alarm. In this example, we want it to say "9".
Repeat the process for the circle icon attached to the orange ring.
Let's set the minutes to "00".
Click to select "AM" or "PM".
We want "AM". The option selected will be highlighted in orange.
Adjust "Occurrence" by clicking either "Once" or "Repeats".
Let's click "Repeats".
Click the boxes to set on which days of the week the alarm will sound.
For example, let's click on Monday through Friday. Selected options will display with orange text and a checkmark in their corresponding boxes. The last thing to do is check the "Sound". It's currently set to "Chimes".
Change the "Sound" option by clicking on the current selection to open a dropdown menu.
Either select from the existing alarm options, or first listen to them and then select one. The best one that works for us is "Jingle", and we can listen to it.
Press the play button to the left of "Jingle".
To set the sound to "Jingle", click the text "Jingle".
Press the save button in the upper right corner of the screen.
The icon is a floppy disc. That's it, the alarm is saved. Now we can go back to the desktop.
Move the cursor to the upper left corner of the screen.
Click the image of the desktop that appears.
This concludes our tutorial on how to set an alarm on Windows 8 computers.
