Windows Set Up for the Calandex
(examples below are for Windows 7)

Important   Third party applications that access the Internet through a browser and/or an e-mail program automatically link through the Windows default browser and mail programs respectively. Microsoft will initially set these programs to Internet Explorer and Outlook Express for obvious reasons. If you use programs other than Microsoft's such as Mozzilla's Firefox browser and/or Thunderbird e-mail program, you can easily set these up as your defaults. (see Windows or the application's help files)

Caution  It is very important to have connection to the Internet when the Calandex calls these Windows defaults.

Setting Mail Client Default  

To change your Windows Internet Mail Client default program, perform the following simple tasks:
(the below procedure may vary depending on the version of Windows)

  1. Open the 'Default Programs' program in the Windows Control Panel.
  2. Click on 'Set your default programs'.
  3. Make your selections.
We recommend Mozzilla's Thunderbird as a viable E-Mail program that will work with the Calandex if your favorite E-Mail client does not get automatically called by the Calandex. It is a free download from Mozzilla.

Windows Date and Time Format

The following information pertains to Calandex Date and Time format

   Warning: The Calandex is not compatable with all Date and Time formats. If you have problems, set your Windows formats to the recommended settings above.
