These additions to the taskbar clock enabled a three-app integration between Cortana, Calendar and the taskbar clock. For example, you can set a reminder with Cortana and it will immediately show in the taskbar clock. Everything works very smooth and is well connected.

To make this connection possible, you need to be connected with the same Microsoft account to all of these apps. The taskbar clock automatically operates under your Microsoft account when you sign into Windows 10, but you’ll need to sign in manually to Cortana and Calendar. Once you’re sure everything is set, you can start creating and managing events in Windows 10’s Cortana, Calendar and the taskbar clock.
