Editors' Review

Desktop Calendar is attractive, very easy to use, and doesn't overwhelm with extras. In fact, its chief virtue may be that it's about as close to a paper wall calendar as a Windows calendar app can get: Just right-click any cell to record appointments, upcoming events, or anything you might write on a wall calendar.


Attractive: Desktop Calendar's default look is pleasing, but we could also customize backgrounds, cells, colors, opacity, fonts, rows, separation of months, and more. Selecting Festivals displays common holidays.

Easy to use: Right-click any cell to enter or edit text, and then click the color icon to choose a custom background color, so it stands out. Click the checkmark when you're done.

Not overwhelming: We like Desktop Calendar's subtle looks and clutter-free approach.


Too basic: While less is more with Desktop Calendar, some users may find it lacks too many useful or expected features.

No hotkeys: We expected to see hotkey combos to show and hide the calendar, but apparently (and unfortunately) Desktop Calendar lacks them.

Bottom Line

Desktop Calendar is not the best choice if you need all the bells and whistles. It's just a nice desktop version of the tested-and-true wall calendar.
