This review originally appeared on Reviewcenter.com and Sharewarejunkies.com in 1998. It was good DOS software that seems to have slipped through the cracks of time. We can’t find a download link for it anymore.

PC Desk is a Personal Information Manager for DOS. It is a very handy and smallin size utility that will keep track of events, dates, holidays, and contacts.
Its features include a day planner, week planner, monthly calendar, yearly calendar, and address book. There is no sound, and the graphics are only 16 colors, but a PIM really doesn’t need to have good graphics and sounds, especially a smaller DOS-based program.
PC Desk is a nice, handy, and convenient PIM that is especially useful for small businesses.
The user interface is very friendly, and you can navigate through the program with just the click of a mouse. Installing the program is very easy, as long as you have a Zip utility (WinZip, Pkunzip, etc.) Registration for the program costs $25, and if you find the program useful, then you should really consider purchasing the full version
Updates from the previous version of PC Desk include:
- Improved the Main Screen Graphical Interface
- Enhanced the Yearly Calendar Display
- Various Internal Modifications
- Added a Windows Icon, PCDESK.ICO, to the Files
- Removed the Utility CONVERT.EXE to Convert Old PCDESK Address Book Formats (Before v6.0)
- The Shareware Version is Now Fully Functional
