Question Home screen linked apps and Handy Shell


I was wondering if there is any way I can set up my device so that when I click on an appointment on my home screen, it will open in Papyrus instead of the default calendar app. I haven't been able to find any app that will take over the home screen to let me customize it more. I downloaded the demo of Handy Shell, but I could not find a way in there to set a different app to use. It seemed to me that the only real benefit to that program is the display of the weather. Everything else seemed to be the same as the default home screen. (Besides the extra application and contact screens.) Am I missing something?

I had a great app on my Treo that let me completely customize my home screen with skins, shortcuts, plug-ins, etc. There is nothing like that for S60?

I'm using a localized version of Handy Shell but try as follows:
Options - Setup (?) - Plugins. Move your cursor over 'Calendar' - press left menu button (Options?), and select 'Customize' (?), and choose the calendar application you want to associate.

Thats the best I can do from my localized version :|

Handy Shell let you use Handy Calendar in the active stand by instead of the default one.
It can customize everything but limited to Epocware applications...profiles can bring Handy Profiles and Clock run Handy Clock...etc.
I didnt like Handy Shell because it has only 6 icons on stand by while am using 8 in my E90.
I want my PC in my pocket.....
