Command Prompt for Windows




Alarm Clocks

The system menu contains the Attributes... option, as below :-

When selected will display the Attributes window containing the Alarm tab, as below :-

The Alarm tab displays the time for the selected alarm clock (ie. either the 1st or 2nd alarm clock), a Set option which either enables or disables the respective alarm clock, four up-and-down arrow buttons to increment the respective digits on the LCD display (including toggling the AM or PM for the time) and the beep hourly and half hourly options.

Setting an alarm clock involves the following steps :-

  1. Select either the 1st or the 2nd alarm clock by positioning the mouse pointer over the desired alarm and pressing the left mouse button once. A dot mark is displayed next to the selected alarm clock.

  2. Set the desired time by positioning the mouse pointer over the up or down arrow buttons, one at a time, and press the left mouse button to either increment or decrement the digits directly above the arrow buttons. Repeat this process until the desired time is displayed in the LCD display. The first up and down arrow button toggles the time from AM to PM and visa versa. The remaining three up and down arrow buttons increment or decrement respectfully the digits directly above the arrow buttons.

  3. Switch the alarm clock on by positioning the mouse pointer over the Set option and pressing the left mouse button. When the respective alarm clock is set then a small tick mark is displayed next the option text, otherwise no tick mark is displayed.

  4. Press the OK button to accept the changes.

The beep hourly and half hourly options will emit a sound either every hour or every half hour. Simply position the mouse pointer over the respective option and press the left mouse button to either switch the option on, signalled by a small tick mark being displayed next to the option text or off, signalled by no tick mark being displayed next to the option text.
