    I'm trying to get the calendar (under Sys Prefs > Date & Time) to display Monday through Sunday. How can I set this up?

    Just an update: This is now doable in 10.6, under Sys Prefs > Language & Text > Formats.

    I don't think you can, but that's the only place you should see that calendar. iChat lets you choose your preferred first day of the week.

    OK, question 2: What's another quick way to see a calendar?

    Question 3: What does iChat have to do with anything?

    iCal? Or just use Dashboard and use the iCal Widget. I use that ALL the time for stuff.

    Why would you want to use the System Preferences calendar?

    Answer to question 4: Please read post #2.

    Answer to question 3: I believe he meant to refer to iCal.

    Answer to question 2: Quickest way to see a calendar would be on the dashboard. Just look for a calendar widget that you like.

    What's wrong with the iCal Widget?

    I think he means that he wants the week to start with Monday, instead of default Sunday.

    To do that, just simply open iCal, go to its Preferences and take a look at drop down option for "Start week on"

    Mine does. :)

    I've no idea how to set it up that way. :eek:

    It's probably because I've got the International Preferences set to the United Kingdom. :confused:

    Innnnnteresting :)

    Answer to question whatever-number-it-was: Because loading iCal takes too much effort, and I forgot that the dashboard existed :p

    Now that I know it's possible, I'm going to fiddle around with various options to try to replicate whatever OllyW's done.

    I have iCal set to launch at startup, and then keep it open. So when I want to open it, it opens instantly.

    But yeah, the Dashboard widget is instant access and useful too.
