The built-in Calendar app in Windows 10 is a capable tool to manage your schedule, meetings, and appointments.
The Calendar app allows you to view, add, edit, and delete events or reminders. You can use this feature to schedule appointments, meetings, and other important everyday engagements.
While adding and removing events or reminders is straightforward in the Calendar app, beginners might need a little help. In this guide, we will see how to add and delete events/reminders in the Windows 10 Calendar app.
Add an event or reminder to Windows 10 Calendar
Step 1: Open the Calendar app. In the left pane or top pane, select a month.
Step 2: To add an event, click on the date tile in the Calendar. Clicking on a date tile will bring up a small dialog where you can type the event name, time, location, and other details.
If you want to add additional details, such as a note, click on the More details link. You can also set a repeating event by clicking on the repeat icon and then selecting a time interval.
Step 3: Click on the Save button. The newly added event or reminder will automatically sync across your devices using the same account.
Add an event right from the Windows 10 taskbar
The Calendar app allows you to add events, but you don’t necessarily need to open the Calendar to add an event. You can add an event right from the taskbar. Here is how:
Step 1: Click on the date and clock on the taskbar to see the calendar flyout.
Step 2: From the Calendar, select a date when you would like to add an event. Once a date is selected, type an event name in the Add an event or reminder box.
Step 3: As soon as you type an event or reminder name, you will see other options like time and location.
Finally, click on the Save button.
Delete an event or reminder in Windows 10 Calendar
Step 1: In the Calendar app, click on the event entry to view a small flyout showing more details about the event.
Step 2: Click on the event name in the flyout to start editing the same.
Step 3: To delete the selected event, click on the Delete option. To delete only the current event (event for the selected date only), click the Delete option.
If it is a repeating event and you want to delete all recurring events, click the Delete all option.
Turn off all notifications from the Calendar in Windows 10
If you do not want to see any event notifications from the Calendar app, you can do so under the Windows 10 Settings by turning off notifications for the app. Here is how to do that.
Step 1: Go to Windows 10 Settings > Notifications & actions page.
Step 2: Here, in the “Get notifications from these senders” section, turn off the toggle button next to the Calendar app. That is it! From now on, on your current PC, you will not get any event notifications from the Calendar app.
