Sometimes you want the fancy version with all the bells and whistles. Other times, you're looking for something a little more basic: "just the facts, ma'am". Desktop Calendar falls into this latter category.

Desktop Calendar is a simple calendar that sits on your Windows Desktop. It doesn't put a button on your Taskbar, and it doesn't stick an icon in your System Tray. What it does do is sit transparently on your desktop, letting you keep an eye on the current month's calendar. You can also set simple reminders, both for one-time-only events and meetings, as well as recurring events. Even for this simple app, you still have plenty of options to customize it to your liking. Pick your font, tweak colors, modify date formats, and even change first-day-of-the-week settings (Sunday? Monday? Something else?). The app is self-contained, so there aren't a bunch of Registry entries or support DLL files scattered across your system, so uninstalling, if necessary, is easy. We're guessing it would probably do fine on a removable drive as well.

Desktop Calendar is a free download. It's a Windows application and should run on systems with Windows 2000 or later.
