    Since desktop gadgets have been discontinued, I miss having the Calendar gadget. It was a sample and convenient way to check out monthly dates and reference past and future dates.

    Is there another such a calendar for my desktop? It should be free and simple and not try to install a bunch of unwanted junk stuff with it.

    Unfortunately, this app implements just what i want to avoid:

    Additional features are "Auto Enabled" including advertisements
    Browser settings may be adjusted at install.
    User info is collected and shared.

    I have found that this type of installation will screw up both browser and OS. I will give it a pass.

    I don't remember seeing one of those useful things (I didn't use the Windows 7 calendar gadget) since last century--Windows 98 or 3.1. :( I also didn't look since I've wanted a "real" computer calendar for longer than that.

    If you don't find a satisfactory desktop calendar consider a browser based one. If you have a Google or Yahoo! or outlook.com (or hotmail.com, live.com) account you could keep one of those calendars open in a tab or a different browser window.
