Editors' review

Not that very long ago a desktop calendar was a big paper thing that sat on top of your desk (sometimes under your typewriter). Now it's typically a piece of software like Interactive Calendar. This attractive program makes it easy to view a calendar on your computer desktop and keep detailed records of upcoming events. We think it's a nice option if you want something more comprehensive than the built-in Windows calendar but don't want to use the calendar that's integrated into your e-mail client.

Interactive Calendar has a sleek, customizable interface. The calendar is meant to appear as a translucent object on the desktop, but you can adjust its opacity, color, fonts, shadows, and much more, giving it a custom look. You can also specify where on the desktop the calendar appears, and an optional wallpaper changer can add extra pizzazz to the desktop. You can create events with start and end times, and each event also has a text editor area in which notes and other details can be recorded. It didn't appear to us that the program has any way to set alerts, so if you need something that's going to remind you when an event is coming up, Interactive Calendar might not be the best choice. But if you're really just in the market for an attractive, highly customizable desktop calendar and you can depend on yourself to see what upcoming events need your attention, we think Interactive Calendar is a great choice. The program doesn't have a Help file, but most people should be able to figure it out with a bit of experimentation.

Interactive Calendar installs and uninstalls without issues.

    "Schedule Entry Overlay"

    August 24, 2013   |   By MastemaRose

    Version: Interactive Calendar 1.2

    Pros

    Ease of use, changing settings many colors to chose from. You can adjust transparency so you can still have a desktop image.

    Cons

    I can see August behind September.

    Summary

    We'll see how this plays out when the month changes on its own, as of right now when I scroll to Sept (from August) I get overlay and its hard to read my entries. If anyone knows how to correct, I'd be extremely grateful.

    "Wonderful Calendar"

    October 15, 2011   |   By kristimonet

    Version: Interactive Calendar 1.0.1

    Pros

    Easy to download, set up and use. You can customize everything from fonts and colors to size..... It is great for a simple every day calendar right where you need it.

    Cons

    There are no reminders, alarms, or to do lists but I didn't need them because I have "Sticky Notes" which are great for those things.

    "Beautiful but Bugged"

    June 16, 2011   |   By SarannWrapp

    Version: Interactive Calendar 1.0.1

    Pros

    It looked wonderful. The size was great for my wide screen display because it sat nicely beside the subject of an off-center wallpaper I have. The "fogged glass" effect of the background matched Windows 7 well.

    Cons

    Within 20 minutes of fiddling with it, the program stopped responding to everything but Task Manager "end program". Choosing the time for a task was arduous due to the small size and being unable to type in the time or choose from a drop down menu.

    Summary

    Once the bugs are kinked out, it will be a lovely program and I will probably use it. However, freezing up is an unpardonable sin for a desktop program on a four day old brand new Lenovo running Windows 7 (my new computer).
