  • Hi,

     

    Thanks for posting in Microsoft TechNet forums.

     

    We can create a keyboard shortcut shown below:


    Step 1. Right click anywhere on the desktop and choose New -> Shortcut.

    Step 2. Type timedate.cpl and click "Finish." You will see a time-date shortcut on your desktop.

    Step 3. Right click that shortcut icon, select Properties and type "D" in the box that says "Shortcut key".

     

    Please press Ctrl+Alt+D to see the current date and time on your screen.

     

    Best Regards

  • Hi Magon

     

    I already knew the shortcut timedate.cpl.
    What I'm looking for is a shortcut to the window with the Calendar.
    The popup window that appears when you click the time display in the system tray.

  • Hi,

    The popup windows will show up only by one clicking. I don't quite understand if it has and difference with shortcut.

  • Hi Magon

    It is the popup window that you see,
    when you click the time display in the system tray in Vista.
    If you then click somewhere else the window disappears again.
    From that same popup window,
    you can also launch the window that opens when you would click the timedate.cpl shortcut.
    So what I'm interested in, is a shortcut to that window that displays the calendar,
    the one that opens when you click the time display in the system tray. (See illustration at the beginning of this topic)

    Regards

  • Why is it impossible for microsoft, to answer this question ?

    They have developed the operating system, and can not even say how a particular item can be started from a shortcut !!!

  • Is this the way a Technet subscriber is treated.

    I have already lodged a complaint with microsoft,
    it's not the first time that there is no answer to my question.

  • Hi,

    Sorry for the late response. Please understand there is no shortcut to the calendar popup which is by design. To workaround this issue, I suggest installing new gadgets for the Sidebar in Windows Vista.

    Thanks,
