Desktop Calendar

Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

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.

What do you need to know about free software?

Version 0.44:
  • The hotkey CTRL+A will now select all text in the edit window
