Scott, anything new with the calendar issue? I also lost mine

I’m being told it’s working again

I thought I was losing my mind, glad to see others with the same issue. but how to return to the small calendar display? It’s gone and it’s not listed in the “Add-On’s”, and I don’t see “Labs” any longer? Anyone know to to bring this back? Thanks!

Calendar not showing. Windows 10 running Chrome 63.0.3239.84 (Official Build) (64-bit).

Are you all talking about on your computer or Android. I have a Gmail app but I don’t know how to get to my calendar from there. I don’t have the Google Calendar app.

I just imported my Outlook calendar to google to try to streamline. Is there any way you can see an entire month of the calendar rather than just upcoming appointments?

I have multiple calendars that are listed on the GMail Google Calendar Gadget. However, they are not alphabetical/numerical. Is there a way to set them up to be alphabetical/numerical?

Not that I am aware of

New gmail no longer has labs. I don’t see a way to enable this.

my gmail does not arrive in my email

Google Calendar sucks, why did the brilliant idiots at Google decide that the calendar did not need to show on the email page, I like mine on lower left hand side, and why did they take away tabs button?

Total idiots at Google. Unreal that I can’t get my calendar on my email page.

I used to have my Google calendar in my Gmail (left bottom) but it has gone away! Now when I search it I fine directions go to gear top right and got to “lab Tab” there IS NO SUCH TAB even when I search. What’s up with that? ALso Ditto the the above question.

How to use your google calendar in the windows 10 calendar app

With the arrival of Windows 10, we’ve been greeted with a new slew of functionality-based programs and applications. One of these additions is the revamped Calendar app, which isn’t just more functional than its predecessor, it’s actually (dare I say), downright pleasurable to use. But what if you want your classic Google Calendar synced up with Microsoft’s internal app ecosystem?

Thanks to the integration of desktop notifications and global compatibility with the rest of Windows 10 services, the process of getting your Google Calendar synced and configured on your Windows login is both simple and highly customizable at the same time.

Sync Your Account

To start off, you’re going to need to get your Google account information linked up in the Windows 10 calendar app.

To do this, navigate to the Start Menu, and select the Calendar app in the top-right corner.

Once the Calendar is up, to add a Google account you’ll need to find the Settings icon, located in the bottom left-hand corner of the app.

Once you’re in the settings menu, click on “Accounts”, and then choose the option to “Add account”.

Update: Microsoft has redesigned this app a bit, but the instructions still work almost the same. Click “Manage Accounts” instead of “Accounts” here.

From here, you’ll be greeted with a prompt that has several different choices. You can either add an Outlook.com account, link your Office 365 Exchange, Google account, or iCloud. For the purpose of this tutorial, choose the “Google” option.

Once you select this, the standard Google login portal will take over.

If your Google account is set to a regular log in, it will immediately link you up and you’ll be taken to the main Calendar splash screen. However if you have two-step verification activated on the account in order to protect from unauthorized users who may try to access it without your permission, this is where you’ll be asked to enter the code given to you either through a text or a call from the company.

The last screen you’ll see before the sync is complete is the Google permissions runthrough, which will list all of the different apps and services that the Calendar will need to have access to if you want to use the account from your Windows 10 desktop.

Once these are approved, you should be ready to get your Windows 10 Calendar customized to your specific requirements.

Configure Your Calendar

After the Calendar is up and running, you’ll notice there are a number of settings that you can change around which will vary depending on the service you linked (i.e – Outlook is different from Google, which itself is different from what’s available in POP3).

To get into your settings, click the small clockwork icon located in the bottom left-hand corner of the Calendar app one more time.

How to use your google calendar in the windows 10 calendar app

From here, enter Calendar Settings, where you’ll find the following options have been opened up since the Google account was synced.

You can change things around such as which day the Calendar sets as the first day of the week, as well as specifying exactly which hours of the day you work and when you’re off so the Calendar doesn’t ping you with unnecessary or unwanted notifications.

Modify Sync Settings

Lastly, if you want to alter how often your Calendar communicates with Google’s servers for new appointments or notification updates, you can access these menus by first going into settings, and then selecting the option for “Accounts”.

Once you’ve opened the Gmail account, click on the “Change mailbox sync settings” option, and you’ll be taken to the menu below.

It’s here you’ll have the opportunity to change how often the Calendar pings its host account for updates (every 15 minutes, 30 minutes, etc), as well as whether or not full descriptions or messages are downloaded each time it finds something new.

Furthermore, you can also change where the Calendar app connects to in order to pull down information from Google, although this isn’t recommended unless you have a special configuration lined up on the server side of things.

Keep in mind, once you add your Google account to the Calendar, Windows will automatically sync your attached email up as well. If you prefer to keep these two ecosystems separated, this setting can be turned off in one of two ways.

To access the first, you need to enter your Account settings and switch the sync for email to the “Off” position. The same can be done for Contacts and the Calendar itself, though if you switch that option, none of the data you’ve just set up will be accessible by the app to start with.

The second method of de-linking your email and calendar is to go into the Calendar tab in Settings, and switch it off manually after the syncing process is complete using the setting highlighted below:

Leaving behind your old schedule is hard, but thanks to the dozens of changes made to the Calendar in Windows 10, it’s become a welcome addition to Microsoft’s suite of internal apps.
