Desktop Calendar is a pretty well made freeware and is handy. It’s takes just a few seconds to add, edit, and save reminders. The freeware is pretty easy and also clean. It doesn’t needs any installation (that is it’s portable and runs in any PC). All you have to do is simply extract the downloaded zip file and run the .EXE file.

I liked that the freeware is pretty much customizable. There’s a help file named “readme.txt” for customizing and adding reminders, in the downloaded zip file. Still, the freeware is well made and you won’t need any help for customizing the calendar attributes and adding reminders. Simply right-click on the calendar, and click on Options button. This opens an easy to use window for setting calendar’s attributes. There are 5 tabs, consisting of: Options, Highlight, Tooltips, Reminder Types, and Other.
You can change the dates font color, mouse over color, days color, spacing between dates, date formats, choose first day of week, add/delete reminder types, assign reminder color, change attributes of dates containing reminder, and number of reminders that’ll be shown in the list. There’s more in these calendar settings. Simply go to the desired tab and change the settings.

The interface is very simple and easy to understand. There are two tabs in this window: Reminders and Regular Reminders, which are basically the reminder types. Simply choose the tab, according to the reminder’s type and then click on Add button.
After that enter the description at the bottom and choose the reminder type (that is whether anniversary, birthday, public holiday, reminder etc.)
