To display a customized Windows Calendar file when you start Windows, you
can add the Calendar file as an icon in the Windows Startup group. However,
you cannot set the location or size of the calendar window as it first
appears on the screen.
To display your daily Calendar file at Windows startup, do the
- Run Calendar from the Accessories group.
- Add any information you want to your daily calendar, and choose the
desired Calendar settings.
- From the File menu, choose Save As. In the File Name box, enter a
new name for the file (for example, MY.CAL).
- Open the Startup group.
- From the Program Manager File menu, choose New. Select the New
Program Item button and choose OK.
- In the Program Item Properties dialog box, choose Browse.
- Enter *.CAL in the File Name box.
- Select MY.CAL from the appropriate subdirectory and choose OK.
The correct path and filename will appear in the Command Line box.
The next time you start Windows, your Calendar file will appear as the
first open window on the screen. If there is more than one icon in the
Startup group, they are opened in order starting from the upper left
corner, and going from left to right in the Startup group window.
If you decide you want your calendar to open as an icon rather than an
open window, select the Run Minimized option before saving the Program
Item Properties settings.
