Editors' Review


We are highly dependent on calendars; we have one on our wall, one on our phone, one in our bag, and one on the Internet. With Desktop Calendar, we can now have one on our desktop as well. Although this calendar has some room for improvement, we think it's a great choice if you want an attractive, easy-to-access calendar on your computer.

The calendar took up about two-thirds of our screen, appearing as a transparent grid that let our original desktop image show through. Adding an event was as easy as double-clicking on a particular day and entering our details; the program also gave us the option of color-coding our events. The calendar is highly customizable, with options for adjusting the transparency and the number of rows and past weeks shown. Although by default Desktop Calendar will utilize your current desktop image, it also has an option that will loop user-selected images in intervals ranging from 5 minutes to 2 hours. There's no Help file, but the program does come with a set-up wizard that covers the basics. Overall, we thought that Desktop Calendar was attractive and easy to use, but we would have been really crazy about it if it had the capability to integrate with Google Calendar. It does allow users to import and export data that's saved as a DB file, but we are spoiled and want things to update automatically. Still, if you don't mind entering events manually, Desktop Calendar is a versatile and well-designed option, and we recommend it.

Desktop Calendar installs a desktop icon without asking but uninstalls cleanly.

"It is easy to use once you become familiar with it."

It overlays the desktop that is there currently. It is not overpowering to look at.


It would be nice to be able to minimize it to a smaller calendar that could be moved around the desktop as needed.


I have been looking for a desktop calendar for a long time and this one is pretty good. I would recommend it.

This is the second time I downloaded this desktop calendar. (I just got a new desktop so I needed to do it again!) It is working great and I would recommend it to everyone. It is not overpowering on the desktop.
