Default Basic Simple Desktop Calendar

Do you know of anything basic that can be used purely as a calendar, without any reminder or 'to do' features? I really need nothing more than the equivalent of a physical wall calendar, but for a Win 8.1 desktop -- don't even particularly want it permanently open/displayed, so a shortcut to a small piece of installed software to use whenever required would be fine and less clutter (maybe take up less hard drive space too, than something with features I wouldn't ever need), but it should be capable of going back to any year in the past. Thanks.

I'm not aware of any program that directly does what you're looking for, but one option would always be to use a simple note-taking program and import a wall calendar image into it - or just setting up a calendar in a word-processing program. There you could just use a 7x5 grid and set that up as a sort of calendar, then you wouldn't even need to use a separate program.

I just use click on the Windows system time (and date) on the Windows taskbar and the calendar is displayed a month at a time.

Maybe you have that turned off. if you do here's how to turn it back on:

There is also a calendar in most email programs including Windows Live Mail, Windows Mail (and Calendar) app, Outlook, etc.

There's a small selection here (the last one is for Linux only).

Although these do more than you want, most are customizable so you can switch the non required features off.
