One, the calendar on the desktop
Because Word has a powerful Insert object feature, we can insert a calendar control into a document, save the document as an HTML document, and then go back to the desktop to set up the wallpaper, and then select the saved HTML document to display the calendar on the desktop.
When you start Word2003, open the Object command under the Insert menu, pops up the Object dialog box, selects Calendar control in object type, and clicks OK (Figure 1), which automatically adds a calendar icon to the document and opens the Control Toolbox toolbar. At this point we first select the inserted control and set it to the right display of the page, which is primarily for the purpose of saving HTML as a desktop wallpaper, so that the calendar appears on the top right of the desktop, without affecting the viewing of other icons on the desktop.
