How to add your Alarm information to your Windows Mobile home screen

This brief tutorial will guide you through adding your Alarm info directly on to your Windows Mobile home screen.

adding an alarm to your windows mobile home screen

  1. Download and install the Alarm Info Plugin. You’ll need to transfer the appropriate .cab file (AlarmInfo_WM5.ARM.CAB for Windows Mobile 5 or AlarmInfo_2003.ARM.CAB for Windows Mobile 2003) to your device and run it from there. Make sure to install the plugin to your device’s main memory – not a storage card (assuming you have one). Note: if you get an error during the installation for Windows Mobile 5 saying that it was designed for a different version of the OS, ignore it. The plugin will probably work anyway.
  2. Once installed, click Start -> Settings -> Home Screen.
