Windows 7 : Managing Your Schedule - Printing Calendars

11/4/2012 7:59:29 PM
This may seem a bit antiquated in this day of digital tools, but both Windows Live Calendar and the Calendar component of Windows Live Mail include decent printing capabilities, enabling you to print your calendars in various attractive ways. This is handy for people who need a quick printout or haven't otherwise embraced the notion of personal digital assistants (PDAs) or smartphones. Sometimes, a piece of paper just works.

1. Printing from Windows Live Calendar

To print one or more calendar(s) from Windows Live Calendar, make sure the calendars you want to include are selected. Then, pick the view you want—Day, Week, Month, or Agenda, or To-do list for that matter—from the tabs at the top of the display. Next, click the Print icon. Your Web browser will load a new page, as shown in Figure 1, with a rough approximation of the Windows Live Calendar view you selected. If you picked Day, Week, or Month, you can also optionally select the Include event list option to add a nice list of the calendar-based events below the Calendar view.

Click the Print link at the top of the window to print the page.

Figure 1. Windows Live Calendar offers decent printing capabilities.

2. Printing from Calendar

To print one or more calendar(s) from the Calendar view in Windows Live Mail, you must again make sure that the calendars you want to include are selected. Then, click the Print toolbar button. In the Print window that appears, select the printer and the Print Style (Day, Week, or Month). The printout, as shown in Figure 2, is an exact duplication of the calendar display in Windows Live Mail and is quite attractive.

Figure 2. Windows Live Mail offers beautiful calendar printing, though only with a limited range of view styles.


Because Calendar does not support to-do items, you can print only to-do's with Windows Live Calendar. Also, Windows Live Calendar supports the unique Agenda view.


If Windows Live Calendar has a major limitation in its current state, it's that it does not support syncing with Windows Mobile devices. This will obviously change in the future, quite possibly by the time you read this. But as of this writing, you can sync Windows Live Hotmail and People to Windows Mobile, but not Windows Live Calendar.
