1. What is Desktop Calendar?

Desktop Calendar is written by Inprise Delphi 5J and lets you draw a calendar on your Windows desktop. Although there are many kinds of software with similar functionality, these are all, as far as I know, used to draw a calendar directly on the wallpaper bitmap file, which causes the calendar to be displayed redundantly or partly outside the screen if you are using tiled wallpaper. In addition, you may not like programs that stays active, because it may slow down or even make the overall system operation unstable.
Desktop Calendar provides a perfect solution for you, allowing you to easily draw a cool looking calendar at the desired location on your screen in the desired style.
This software is provided as freeware.

2. Features

  • Since this program draws a calendar literally on your desktop, you can locate the calendar anywhere you like even when your wallpaper is tiled. This can be done without affecting either your wallpaper or desktop icons.
  • Since the program is just for drawing on your desktop, once drawing is completed, you can exit the program rather than keep it active in your system.
  • The program supports the Microsoft PLUS! option, Stretching the Desktop Wallpaper to Fit the Screen.
  • The program offers limited support for the Active Desktop.
  • As an additional feature, Desktop Calendar can stagger your wallpaper's tile patterns either vertically or horizontally.
  • If multiple users use the computer, each user may personalize the calendar settings.
  • To launch the program only for drawing, the -OnlyDraw option is provided to add to your Windows Startup. As Soon as completing the calendar as specified in advance, the program will automatically quit. Addition to Startup can be done with one click.
  • You can set special dates such as your birthday indicated in the calendar. You can also set a reminder message box to appear on the day at start up.
