VueMinder Calendar Lite

Monday, November 21st, 2011 by | Filed Under: Free Downloads

Juny from Nairobi asks:

How do I put a reminder of something important on my PC?

Thanks for the question Juny. Your current system or email client probably already provides this function, but without knowing what you’re using, I can’t address that. However, there are dozens of free and reliable calendars that include reminders. One is VueMinder Calendar Lite; a calendar application laden with useful features, but this article will focus on reminders. However, I recommend taking a thorough look at the available options.

During a straightforward download and installation, you’ll be offered the options shown below. I chose to leave both boxes checked.


On my computer, when the application installed, the desktop calendar was placed in an inconvenient location. In that case, click the Move/Resize button to generate a frame from which the calendar can be moved, using the title bar.


There are several ways to create an appointment (event). The easiest is to click the New Event button.


This will bring up the Event window. For the taskbar reminder displayed below, check the Show a desktop alert box at the left. You can also add a voice reminder by clicking the radio button in the center. Click the Preview button at the right and, if it’s what you want, click Save and Close in the upper left.


If you check Show a popup reminder, one will appear at a prescheduled time. As seen here, it can also be opened, deleted, dismissed, or the snooze can be set for later.


To delete a reminder, simply select the reminder and click the Delete button.


Everything above was done with the desktop calendar, but the VueMinder Calendar can also be accessed by double-clicking the taskbar icon, although right-clicking it will reveal the options below.


Here is a screenshot of the standard interface, with event and reminder items highlighted.


Juny, I hope this helps. Thanks again for the question. VueMinder Calendar Lite can be downloaded here.

    Kevin – Great tip on VueMinder, although I wanted reminders that would open a url, so I’ve downloaded their free 60day trial. I like what I’ve seen so far, and it will certainly get daily use from me. Thanks again, cheers, and Happy Thanksgiving to the gang there…

    Today, I installed VueMinder Calendar Lite on my win 7 pc.After it installed, it started to freeze up my computer.I tried to uninstall it from the control pannel but it gave me an error message.I tried it like 5 times.So i had to use system restore to try to delete the program.Restore started and restarted the computer.A boot screen came up and said that Windows was unable to start.I got nervous there.So I selected the recommended option to repair windows.The Windows Vista like loading screen(just the bar)came up and my screen enlarged and that the screen said that windows was going to check for start up problems because of the computer failure.After it finished it, the system resore started up again and I was able to get my computer back, Thank Goodness!!I never had a problem with my sytem before and this was the first time I encountered the repair screen.So, please find a different program like VueMinder but, DO NOT INSTALL VueMinder on your computer.
