    Desktop calendar

    I am looking for a plain, graph type calendar to sit on my task bar and is available to pop-up at any time like the "date/ time" is!
    I've looked on google but all I find are fancy ones that you can enter info into. I just want to see the days and where in the month they fall!

    *sigh* Sometimes the simplest things....

    At the bottom right hand corner I have time of day...left click and a monthly calendar pops up which I am able to scroll back or forward by months if so inclined....check to see if you can, too.
    Don't worry spider.

    Wow! I just got Windows 10 and I had no idea that a calendar was where the date and time are - thanks for posting this question. Learn something new every day ...

    It's also under Apps in the Windows 10 system.
    Never used one the computer before until this version, for some reason. I guess actually hand writing things down helped me to remember them if the calendar wasn't at hand.

    I have Windows 10 also - under apps. I clicked and dragged the icon to my desktop so it is easy to access.

    Same here, but if I'm writing checks or just need to see what day it is, it's easy to find...no need for a calendar to clutter my office.

    And you are all welcome...

    Mine is in the top right. It all depends on where your task bar is located. It is one of the first things I add to my task bar when I get a new computer.
