How to set an alarm in Windows 10 Mobile

Setting an alarm on Windows 10 Mobile is really easy. When you swipe towards the app list, Alarms & Clock is usually on top, so it's hard to miss. We'll show you how to set an alarm whether you need to set it every day for work or need to make sure to wake up after a quick nap.

  1. Open Alarms & Clock and tap or click the Alarm tab.
  2. Tap the new button at the bottom of the screen. Alternatively, you can edit an existing alarm in the list by tapping it.
  3. Set the name, time, repetitions, sound, and snooze time for the alarm and then tap save.

  2. Say, "Set an alarm for [time]" or "Wake me up at [time]"
