If you have to work with Outlook as much as I do, this might be useful:
“DeskTask connects to Microsoft Outlook and displays your calendar and task items on the desktop.
* Your tasks will always be visible, saving precious time to launch or switch to Outlook.
* Just minimize every window, and see what are the items due for today or tomorrow.
* DeskTask displays the whole week so you can be prepared to organize your work.
* Besides the calendar items, the Outlook to-do list (Folder Tasks) is also displayed. If you work with Outlook, DeskTask is for you”
