Is there a way to stop Outlook 2010 pro plus calender

Is there a way to stop Outlook 2010 pro plus calender reminders giving your reminders all day events by default? I seen this on google calendar - Outlook and all day event reminders - Super User
But I am very wary of Macros. Is there another way or can you do it in office 2007 if you can i think i will go back to that as you can't even set up out of office assistant in office 2010 professional plus

You might see if this gives you any relief. Start Microsoft Outlook. In Outlook 2010, go to the "File" tab and click "Options." Select the "Advanced" tab in the left pane and find the "Reminders" section. Make sure the "Show Reminders" check box is unselected. Click "OK."

Not sure if this will work but give it a try...

In the Reminder pop up window, click the drop list under Click Snooze to be reminded again in: and select either 5 minutes before start or select 0 hours before start then click the Snooze button. Let us know if that works.

I think I have mislead you's what i am trying to workout is when i go to set a reminder i double click on the date and when the pop up comes up its always set to an all day event i have to untick it. I was wondering if i could change that to be unticked. Sorry if i mislead you's

Hello hollyoaks777

Instead of double-clicking the day on the calendar, use a single click then touch 'New Appointment' on the ribbon. The same box will open as before, but without the 'All Day Event' checked.

It involves one less number of clicks and achieves the desired outcome.
