    Wake-up Alarm?


    The last few days an alarm has come up at 7:15 AM on my laptop running Windows 8.1.
    I am not interested in having this alarm, but I can't find how to disable it. I searched for 'Alarm', but I can't find where it resides. Can anyone tell me where to find this app so I can turn it off?
    Thanks.

    Looking on the Apps page, I found an Alarm app which I had never installed, but it was set to 7:15 AM.
    It had a button which toggles between 'ON' and 'OFF'. It is now turned off after I toggled it.
    What is strange is when I used the CHARMS search, it didn't show up. Since I upgraded to Windows 8.1 it doesn't seem to have the 'Apps' option to search in.
