(For Windows 98-XP only) Using Windows’ Active Desktop feature, this tutorial will show you how to embed your Remember the Milk to-do list on the Windows desktop. You’ll need a Remember the Milk account, Windows, and the ability to use Internet Explorer for short periods of time without exploding. Update: We’ve covered some more webapps in this post.
Another Update: Mark Godwin has a tutorial for Windows Vista users.
You’re required to use Internet Explorer. Make sure you check “Remember me on this computer” or otherwise the To-Do list we’ll embed will log you out.
Right click on any empty spot on your desktop, and select Properties.
You’ll be greeted by Display Properties. Click on the Desktop tab, and click on the button below the list of wallpaper that says Customize Desktop…
A Desktop Items window will appear. Click on the Web tab, and click on the button labeled New.
The New Desktop Wizard. Put the following URL in Location field, and click OK.
You’ll see the Desktop Items window again. Make sure your new entry is checked, and click OK. Then click OK to the Display Properties window. Magically, your Remember the Milk to-do list appears on the desktop. You can resize it, and move it around.
