Calendar & To Do list free standing

Is there a program that I can run on startup that will display a calendar and a "To Do" list, allowing updates.

I use Google calendar but too often forget to run it.

Why not create a shortcut to Google Calendar and put it in Startup under All Programs. This way it will open whenever you bootup.

Duh! Sorry but can you explain how I create the shortcut. I've been onto the Google calendar and can't find anyway of creating a shortcut, including right click.

Is the "startup" the thing you get running msconfig or is it somewhere else.

Whatever your browser!!!! go into your Google Calendar.

Then highlight the address in the address bar including the https bit at the front and once highlighted left click and hold it down. Drag this to your desktop. You now have the shortcut on the desktop.

Go to Start > All Programs >Startup. Left click on it and choose Explore.

In the open window cut and paste the shortcut you created on the desktop into the window.

Shutdown all windows and log out.

Now log back in and Google should open and ask for your password and then open Calendar
