Very neat, anyway to change the ugly looking icon for the message in the taskbar?

Hey Matt,

If you mean the default icon on the far right of your taskbar, then it looks like it may be corrupted. See if rebuilding the icon cache may help.

Yes I mean that icon. How does it normally look though? Also what file extension is it? exe or ico? I tried restoring those two and also rebuilding the icon cache as per your suggestion but it doesn't work.

If I remember correctly, I thought it was just a Task Scheduler icon.

Hi Brink,

I am a newbie here. Not much of vbs knowledge

I tried the vbs file and the pop up window appeared. This solves my search in reminding my staff to check in all their work at the end of the day !!

My question why are there two pop up windows appearing? Is this the norm?

I have attached the print screen.

Thanks
Christine

Hello Christine, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Since you used the option to run the .vbs in Task Manager, it will show the command prompt with the message. It'll close when the message is closed.

If you haven't already, you might try the tutorial as is to see if the message will appear on top when displayed to avoid the command prompt showing.

Hi Brink,
Thank you for your reply. Yes it closes the moment I click the "X" button.

The tutorials that you are referring to, where can I get them?

Thanks

Good Afternoon Everyone,

I am still having trouble getting this to work. I created a VBS script that I can run. It creates the pop-up window with my message. However, when I use the task scheduler it will not run the script. I continue to see that the task wasn't run.

I am trying to get a pop up reminder to everyone on my domain to log off a certain application. I have been messing with this and trying to create a GPO that will do the same but with no luck.

Hello Yoder, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might also see if a log on screen message may work for this.
