How to Get Alerts When You Miss a Call on Windows 10

Sometimes you can’t be near your phone. Most of the time, that’s fine. But on occasion, though, you might need to know if a certain call comes in even while you’re buried in work on your PC.

That’s why there’s a cool feature tucked away in Windows 10 that will allow you to receive missed call notifications right on your PC. Here’s how to get it up and running.

Note: This requires a Windows phone.

First, here’s what you need to do from your desktop:

  • Click the Cortana icon on your taskbar.
  • In the menu on the left, click the third icon from the top (looks like a book).
  • Click Settings.
  • Scroll to Missed Call Notifications and turn it to On.


Now, here’s what you need to do on your phone:

  • Click Search
  • Click the hamburger icon
  • Select the third icon from top labeled Notebook
  • Click Settings
  • Scroll to Missed Call Notifications and turn it to On

Now, if you miss a call on your Windows phone, an alert will pop up on your desktop!
