Editors' Review

+
There are simply too many calendar programs on the market, so we expect a lot from programs that claim to be "highly customizable." Desktop Calendar places a calendar grid on your (duh!) desktop to which you add appointments and reminders. Notes appear on the calendar once entered. Events can be exported to CVS, DAT, and TXT files, or imported from CVS or DAT files. The only customizable feature we found was one to change the color of the calendar, however. We also couldn't figure out how to set reminders for upcoming events. While Desktop Calendar works just fine, it's got so few features we feel it's hardly more useful than some freeware apps on the market. And last we checked, most paper calendars were cheaper, too.

"Too big and not pleasing to look at."

December 04, 2011  |  By aurorallights

 |  Version: Desktop Calendar 0.44

Pros

I don't see any.

Cons

Too big and ugly. Takes up too much room. All I wanted was something useful that wasn't too big.

"Not for me"

September 18, 2011  |  By duchess1946

 |  Version: Desktop Calendar 0.44

Pros

This calendar is very clear setting on the screen

Cons

I would rather not have something sitting on the screen as there is too much there already.

Summary

If you have enough room on your browser it would be ok to use.

"What I like and do not like"

August 02, 2011  |  By Hawkshirl

 |  Version: Desktop Calendar 0.44

Pros

I think this is the best of all planner calendars. It is easy to use and has an easy format.

Cons

I do have problems with lost data and trying to retrieve it. At this moment I am having just that problem. Also, I would like choices with printing. I would like to be able to print each month as it appears on screen.
