If you sit at your computer to work, it may be that the hours pass you without realizing it. If you can get your PC to tell you the time every time 60 minutes pass, you will feel more active and with a better notion of time.
In this post, let’s see how we can make Windows 10 tell you the time every hour or 60 minutes. This can be especially helpful if you tend to lose track of time while working.
Make Windows 10 tell the time
To make Windows 8 tell us the time every 60 minutes, do the following:
1. First open Notepad and copy and paste the following:
Dim speaks, speech speaks = hour (time) Set speech = CreateObject ("sapi.spvoice") speech.Speak speaks
2. Now save the file with whatever name you want and the extension.vbs.
3. Then, type “Task Scheduler” without the quotes in the Windows 10 search box, and select the main Task Scheduler result .
4. From the Action menu , select the Create Task option . Give the task a name, such as TellTime.
5. Go to the Triggers tab and click New.
6. Set the parameters Start with date and time, Repeat every 1 hour, For indefinitely, and so on, as shown in the following image and click OK.
7. Now go to the Actions tab and click on the New button . In the New Action window , select the Start a program action .
8. Under Program or script, use the Browse button to find the.vbs file that you created in the first step. Click OK to save.
If you wish, you can change some parameters in the Conditions and Settings tabs, but leaving it with its default settings works fine.
9. Click OK.
Now every hour Windows 10 will talk to you telling the time. The trick works for Windows 8, Windows 7 and predecessors as well, but of course, the process varies a bit.
