Windows Calendar

If you’re like me, you’ve got a lot of events to go to and people to see everyday. I used to keep a journal to manage all of my appointments, but now, I just use Windows Calendar! It’s really easy to get started and once you’ve got it going, you won’t want to stop. Let’s check it out!

To start up Windows Calendar in Windows Vista, go to Start, All Programs. Then choose Windows Calendar.

Wow! As you can see, it has today’s date, an appointment book and even a to-do list (called Tasks). The first thing you’re going to want to do is schedule a new appointment. Let’s pretend for a moment that you’re friends with the President and Vice President of the United States. The President calls to let you know he wants to see you at 1 p.m. on June 30, 2008. So, you whip out Windows Calendar, double click on the 1 p.m. option and enter the specifics in the Details box on the right. That’s all you have to do!

Now, if you ever happen to double book yourself or you need to change the details for a specific appointment, simply right click on the date and choose what you need to do from the options shown. It’s as easy as that!

Happy scheduling!
