Bring back Outlook Reminder Window popup

So whilst chatting with Carly Bond over coffee she happened to mention to me that Outlook reminder windows never pop up to the front anymore, and instead just sit in the start bar and flash… Which is ok, unless you miss the first set of flashes – this then means you will potentially miss all future reminders, which is far from ideal.

At first I started messing with HWND’s and SetWindowPosition etc, which seemed to go ok – but then I realised, I am complicating it a bit! So A bit of hunting around on the net and a few hours of messing with code later gave me this solution

To implement this solution, launch outlook, press Alt+F11 on your keyboard, insert the code as per the screenshot below
