VueMinder Lite is a FREE full-featured calendar and reminder program for Windows. It supports multiple calendars displayed simultaneously in layers. These can be viewed and printed by day, week, or month. They can also be visually distinguished using any combination of font, background color, and gradient style. VueMinder Lite also integrates an attractive, semi-transparent calendar into your Windows desktop, so you'll always be able to see your upcoming events.

VueMinder Lite provides one-way Google Calendar synchronization. It is also fully compatible with the iCalendar file standard, providing interoperability with most other calendar programs. In addition, calendars can be saved as web pages and uploaded to your website.

VueMinder Lite provides a number of reminder options including popup reminders and desktop alerts. Popup reminders can optionally play video, music, wav files, or text-to-speech voice reminders. Desktop alerts fade into view unobtrusively in the lower-right corner of the screen. These can be set to loop a sound effect or text-to-speech reminder. Recently snoozed or dismissed reminders are easily accessible and can be redisplayed on command.

VueMinder Lite also provides a variety of print layouts and styles. A dynamically updating print preview window allows you to instantly see what will be printed as the various printing options are modified.

For an even more full-featured calendar program, consider upgrading to VueMinder Pro. A side-by-side feature comparison is available here.
