Gain access to a detailed calendar on a computer. Place the window displaying the date and period in the background of your desktop over the wallpaper. Add various notes, tasks, deadlines, and alarms for automated reminders and manual references during work.

Active Desktop Calendar is a good looking and functional interactive calendar which is visible on the desktop over the wallpaper. A calendar may include your notes and the tasks that you planned. Also there are reminders for your events. A calendar can be viewed in a traditional way or as an icon. There is an interesting possibility of creation of layers for different events and connecting multiple computers to the general file. A big issue of many organizers with all the imposing functionality is the lack of usability. Active Desktop Calendar's developers managed to combine a powerful organizer and wallpaper changing utility so the calendar is always seen, but is not irritating. In the center of the desktop, ADC creates an interactive calendar for the last, present and next months, and in the right corner an elegant, semi transparent panel with the nearest week tasks. By clicking on the date, the user will see the list of planned business instantly.
Active Desktop Calendar is able to «memorize» and regularly inform the user about repeated events. However, the real program «feature» is its layer system – separate organizers functioning simultaneously. An unnecessary layer can be removed at any moment. Users may also create new ones or share their content in a local network. Excellent choice for a home user!

7.96 works for me on win10 x64. Whether it and other programs I like will work on Win11 keeps me from updating, along with feeling certain that I would be paying $$$ for even more sophisticated spyware from MS.

I love this, but I think Windows 11 has an issue with it. I backedup my calendar and exported it onto another laptop (an old Win 8 or 7 one). All the latest calendar entries haven't been moved with this importing into the older laptop. I've done it loads of times before, but never from Windows 11. I've also lost the ability to colour items on the calendar. Any ideas anyone? They'd be gratefully received!

It works fine on windows 10 32-bit, but on 64-bit interactive desktop does not work. Any work around?
