The Windows system tray, also known as the notification area, is the portion of your screen most typically found in the lower right-hand corner nearest the clock.
You should see the Q icon somewhere within the icons in the Windows system tray. Sometimes, the number of system tray icons is limited and an arrow is displayed allowing you to view the remaining icons. If you don't see the Q icon – even after clicking on the arrow and viewing the complete list of icons – you'll probably need to restart the application.
Click on the Q icon within your Windows system tray.
You'll most likely need to restart the application. Simply double-click the "QVC Desktop Alert" icon on your desktop or follow the steps below:
Open the main window, and click on "Items Recently on Air" within the gray bar at the bottom.
Either click the "Options" link within the main window, or right-click the Q icon in the Windows system tray and choose "Options". To save any changes made, click the "Save" button. To exit without saving changes, click "Close", "Cancel", or the Windows "Close" button (the X).
Open the application's "Options" window (see instructions above). To disable alert sounds, uncheck "Play sounds. To re-enable alert sounds, check "Play sounds". You can also mix and match the "Today's Special Value" and "One Time Only Value" options to customize the application to your liking.
Open the application's "Options" window (see instructions above). To disable alerts, uncheck "Display alerts". To re-enable alerts at any time, check "Display alerts". You can also mix and match the "Item On Air", "Today's Special Value", and "One Time Only Value" options to customize the application to your liking.
Note: Sounds are automatically enabled and disabled along with alerts.
To view product details, click on the product's image, description, or "More Details" icon.
If enabled, an alert will appear in the bottom right-hand corner of your screen. A sound will also play for the Today's Special Value and One Time Only Value, if enabled. Lastly, the main window will be updated to reflect the latest product information.
Each day, we offer one item at an exceptionally low price that's good for that day until 11:59 p.m. ET.
When our Today's Special Value sells out, there's not enough product for another on-air presentation, or no other presentation is scheduled that day, we have the opportunity to offer One Time Only Values. It features the lowest price you'll ever see on that item on QVC. This price is only valid for a very limited time, or until the item sells out, whichever occurs first.
