Since there are a lot of times the chat messages are ignored for announcements to clients, is there a way to force a windows alert on the screen that anyone knows of? I remember the net send used to work, but not quite anymore.

Yes, on Windows 7/8 Pro/Enterprise

msg * /w /time:446400 <Your Message>

On Windows 7/8 Home

C:\Windows\winsxs\amd64_microsoft-windows-t..commandlinetoolsmqq_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7600.16385_none_851e6308c5b62529\msg * /w /time:446400 <your message>

You can change the timeout displayed to suit your needs.

Remove the <> around "your message"

IE msg * /w /time:446400 Your invoice is overdue, please call us at: XXX-XXX-XXXX

I made a typo.

You CAN use MSG in the home version, it's in a weird folder:
