    You can do that in Outlook's calendar thingy. Maybe the task scheduler has that capability too. Dunno, might be worth looking into.

    RTFM! /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    It's just adding a new appointment. If you use the HELP feature - look for calendar or appointments. You should get the answer you are looking for /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Yeah just right click on the desktop go to properties. Under desktop themes there are many different ones. If you liked the old style just click "windows classic" thats the gray color from ME/98.

    Why not just buy a notepad and tape it to the monitor, and a small clock that displays the date and tape it to the other side of the monitor?
