  1. From the Tools menu, select Options.

  2. Ensure the Preferences tab is selected.

  3. Ensure that the Default Reminder checkbox is selected.

  4. Select the desired reminder time from the drop-down menu next to the Default Reminder checkbox.

  5. Select the OK button to close the Options window.

Outlook 2010

  1. Select the File tab and select Options.

  2. In the pop-up menu, select Calendar in the left-hand column.

  3. Ensure that the Default Reminder checkbox is selected.

  4. Select the desired reminder time from the drop-down menu next to the Default Reminder checkbox.

  5. Select the OK button to close the Options window.
