How to sync your Windows to-do lists and Cortana reminders with macOS

Apple macOS is getting better and smarter every year. Last year, Apple announced macOS Mojave at its WWDC event with a lot of new things and improvements. In reality, Apple’s desktop operating system is lagging behind Windows in terms of customization options, but it still shines out there thanks to its smooth performance.

Apple is opening its OS to third-party developers out there, providing users with more options to interact with apps and services. In this case, you can easily sync your Microsoft To-Do lists and Cortana reminders with Apple macOS. This can be done without the need for an additional program to be installed on your device. All it takes is the Exchange account option in macOS. 

In this step-by-step guide, we will show you how to sync Microsoft To-Do lists and Cortana reminders with macOS. Before we begin, make sure you have the latest software update on your Mac.

How to sync your Windows To-Do lists and Cortana reminders with macOS

To do this, you first need to turn on Syncing on your Mac. To do this, click on Apple icon at the top of the screen, then select System Preferences from the drop-down menu and select Internet Accounts.

Step one: From here, select the Exchange option from the list, then enter your Microsoft account email and hit Sign In

Step two: Now just simply insert your Microsoft Account password and proceed with clicking Sign In

Step three: Select all the apps you wish to use with this account and then launch the Reminders app on your Mac

Step four: Once you are in, you should see a list of your reminders and to-do lists.

If you have problems during the process, then make sure you reboot your Mac. Note that a reboot helps you fix some major problems on your devices, from app crashing to frozen keyboard and unresponsive touchscreen.

If you have exhausted all possibilities, but the problem still persists, then the next solution is to restore your device. Note that doing so will erase your device, meaning that you need to set up everything from scratch.
