    Okay.  The answer is "no".  You cannot have the bill reminders appear on any computer without first opening up the Quicken program/application.

    Take care.

    Just to clarify for all of us here - you were asking about "bill reminders" - is that correct?   If so, that has nothing to do with "Billminder" which is a blast from the past... for most of us. So just ignore that mistake.

    Hi @CMH hawley

    You can setup your home screen in Quicken so that "Bill and Income Reminders" appear each time you open Quicken.  Just go to the Quicken "Home" tab and click on the "Customize" button.  If, on the other hand, you are wanting to have those bill reminders appear as you said "on my windows" without opening the Quicken application, I do not believe that is possible.

    Hope this helps, but revert if you have any followups.

    I am aware that the bill reminder appears then and there. Maybe it was the way I phrased my question so I will rephrase it. Is there a way for the bill reminder to appear on the opening of my laptop screen top WITHOUT having to open quicken? Best

    Thank you so much. I wish there was a way. I used MSN bill pay for years and I believe at one point a feature of there's was the bill reminder appearing on your screen. Best

    Quicken intentionally disabled the Billminder functionality in R21.12 (August 2019).

    Billminder provided the functionality @CMH hawley asked about: bill reminders were accessible on the desktop without opening Quicken.  The functionality was available through Quicken 2017.  Many users were disappointed when Quicken decided to drop the functionality.

    I suggest you consider voting for: 

    Bring back Billminder, or provide a Windows notification of upcoming bills

    I am using the latest version of Quicken with Bill Minder.  It existed in "C:\Program Files (x86)\Quicken\billmind.exe" and was never removed when upgrading to the latest Quicken long ago.  I manually added a shortcut to the tray.  It has, for the most part, worked fine but stopped about a month ago.  Today, I see it is working with the latest version of Quicken that was just released.  So don't listen to those who say that the functionality is not there - it most certainly is.
