Calendar as desktop background ?

Post by ipbr21054 » Sun Dec 02, 2012 6:42 am

Is it possible for the calendar to be the Desktop background.
I mean stay maximized all the time.
I currently have it so its minimized to the task bar & pops up once clicked on.
I have looked to see if it can be maximized all the time but dont see anything.

Please advise.

Hi ipbr21054, have you tried using the Desktop Calendar? Right-click the VueMinder icon in the task tray and select "Desktop Calendar (Full)". A calendar will appear on the Windows desktop, below all other open windows. In the upper-right corner of the Desktop Calendar, there's a "Maximize" button. Click that button to make the Desktop Calendar fill the Windows desktop.

Note, if you have any shortcuts on the desktop, those won't be clickable because they are below the desktop calendar. Instead of maximizing the Desktop Calendar, you could use the "Move/Resize" button (in the upper-right corner) to adjust the Desktop Calendar's size so it takes up most the desktop but doesn't overlay the area where your shortcuts are kept.

If you want the main VueMinder window on your desktop, instead of the Desktop Calendar, do you have multiple monitors? If so, you could move the main VueMinder window to one of your other monitors and then press F11 to make it full-screen.
