Calendar Gadget problem

Q: Calendar Gadget problem

Hello

I have been having a problem with getting the calendar gadget displaying a date. It just shows up as an empty orange box. Clicking on it does nothing. When dragged from the sidebar to the desktop, it remains blank, and an ugly white border surrounds it. It retains the white border while going back to the sidebar. So, my question is how would I be able to get the calendar to display dates again and remove the ugly white border.

I have already performed some steps listed on this thread to no avail:
Gadget Border Color Problem
Might re-try the steps in case I missed something.

Any help is appreciated, I liked this gadget.

I have installed the calendar gadget using the Win 8 gadget pack. On the gadget pack dialog box, the calendar gadget is a monthly calendar page with most text in black on a white background, and the current day in red-orange. The installed gadget shows up as a single day page. If I expand the gadget (using two pages, I get both the day page and the month page. I can find no way to shoe just the month page. Can anyone help>

Thanks

Can anyone help me in changing the way it reads? That is, it currently reads Monday to Sunday and I want it to read Sunday to Saturday.

I'm sure the solution is in the Regedit command somewhere as I've done it before, but after 2 years I had to reformat my computer and it defaulted back.

I'm running Windows Vista Premium.

Cheers,

KEN

Hi there! I'm running windows xp home on an hp pavilion a400n, although I'm not sure that matters. I also use Firefox as my default browser.

I've downloaded a Google gadget, the calendar, to my desktop. I use the google calendar as my primary appointment book.

The problem is that the time in my calendar gadget and the time in my actual calendar aren't matching. I enter an appointment into my calendar, and then refresh my calendar gadget to see the updates, and the times on the gadget are on hour earlier than the actual calendar.

In trying to figure out what's happening, I also noticed that the timestamps on my messages, incoming and outgoing, are the same time frame off. When a message comes in or goes out, it immediately shows that it's an hour old.

I went in and made sure the operating system clock and the google gadget clock are on the same time and showing the same DST settings. But I'm still having the same problem.

Is there another clock setting I'm missing?

Help, please!

Windows 7 RC b 7100 x64 Some of my desktop gadgets have disappeared, yet some display properly.  When I right click on desktop for gadget context menu, the gadget link appears in the drop-down but clicking on it is unresponsive.  Same thing happens when I try to use gadget setion of control panel, the menu choices appear but clicking on them they appear frozen.  Therefore I am unable to add gadgets from the list.  What I CAN do however is download and install new gadgets with no problem.  I simply can't seem to get access to previously installed gadgets as the Gadget Gallery is unaccessible.

A:Gadget context menus not working, Gadget gallery not accessible through Control Panel

Hi,
Does the issue occur on Windows 7 RC system build-in Gadgets? If not, this issue can be caused by software compatibility problem between the Gadgets and Windows 7 RC. I suggest that you install Gadgets that are declared as Windows 7 RC compatible.
However, if the issue also occurs with Windows 7 RC system build-in Gadgets, I suggest that you remove these Gadgets, and obtain the Windows 7 RC build-in Gadgets from other Windows 7 RC systems. They are stored in the folder C:\Program Files\Windows Sidebar\GadgetsArthur Xie - MSFT

Hello All,

Frequent reader here, you guys and gals are great. Anyways, Even Google forums don't have the correct solution to sign in with another email address then return to the normal one. The problem is that with when you sign in with Google Calendar (all of a sudden) as a regular google calendar user, not an apps user, it gives a message saying Oops another Calendar has been created for... Then it disables a lot of the features. How do we get our calendars back, please help!

Thanks so much.

iv just got a laptop running windows 7, i put a clock (gadget) on the desktop and a AVG gadget.

now this laptop came with an already installed virus checker, but seeing i downloaded AVG i uninstalled this pre installed virus checker but before that i put a 'system restore' point, just in case.

everything was going well until i came to a web site that said i needed to install an update/upgrade of flash player to view the video, i clicked on install and AVG kicked in and said it was a trojan and did i want to move it to the vault which i did, but as soon as i clicked on the button, to move it, the internet went off.

now im on my desktop and every shortcut i click to open i get a message ' what program do you want to open this with' which isn't right, so i decide to do a system restore and the only way to do this is through 'safe mode' and the latest restore point is before i removed the preinstalled virus checker, so i had it use that one.

all is going fine the laptop restored to this point my gadget clock is showing and the AVG gadget, now i got to uninstall the pre loaded virus checker again did that and it asked for me to restart the laptop, so i did.

I hope that this is the right place to post this thread. I am having trouble with the Logitech gadgets for the Windows sidebar. I have ensured that the software for my Wireless Wave Logitech keyboard/mouse is up to date and also that Windows is up to date and I have run McAfee anti virus scans and Superantispyware and nothing untoward has been found. I have been trying to download and install the Caps lock gadget which used to work but no longer does. I have tried reinstalling it and rebooting several times but to no avail. I got in touch with Logitech who advised me to update SetPoint which I did , still didn't work so they very kindly sent me this new wireless keyboard/ mouse combo but the gadget in the sidebar still doesn't work. I also tried the battery monitor gadget and that doesn't work either . If anyone could help me to fix this I should be very grateful.

Hi,
Well it seems you are not alone with this problem according to Google.
I have the cordless wave set also so I just installed those gadgets from Logitech and they work fine for me. I realize that doesn't solve your problem but I thought you should at least get a response.
Are the rest of your gadgets working or are they the only ones in the sidebar?
I'm not sure whats causing them not to work but if I find something I'll get back to you. Sorry I couldn't help you.

Hi all,
I have searched everywhere and I seem to be having a different issue with my sidebar and windows explorer than others I've read about.

I am running Vista Home Premium on a two month old Toshiba Sattelite.
I have been running Vista on my desktop since may, and have not had this problem.

My sidebar is there but all the gadgets have disapeared! When I go to "add gadgets," there are no gadgets there to add (not even the default gadgets that come with Vista). Also, I tried reinstalling some gadgets. The installation process is fine but at the end of it all there are still no gadgets to be found.

Now...a problem that started at the exact same time...
I cannot open "Personalize" (whether through right-clicking on the desktop or through the control panel). When I try, a blank window pops up for half a second and then disapears and nothing else happens. This also happens with "Power Options," "User Accounts," and other random things (not everything in the control panel). I CAN however look at my files and folders etc.

I have tried System Restore twice....nothing.
There have been no significant changes to my computer...no new programs etc...

I have searched EVERYWHERE on the web and cannot find a solution or anyone who is even having the same problem...PLEASE HELP!!

I have just moved from Beta to RC and while it looked like everything is OK, I'm having this strange problem where my Weatherbug and XM gadgets will not work UNLESS I connect to a VPN. I have disabled the firewall, purged the DNS cache, disabled / re-enabled the NICs, but the problem remains. I have tried this on multiple networks on both my Ethernet and wireless connections (Dell D630 notebook) and get the same result. Any ideas? I'm not even sure where to start looking!

One more thing: I did perform an upgrade install from Beta x64 to RC x64 instead of the "demanded" clean install.

well there may be your first mistake. You're not going to find alot of ppl who are on x64 that have upgraded from beta to RC and have a somewhat similar setup. Thats the longshot horse of the race there.

If you had a beta build of say the new Halo or whatever, and it was a little buggy, and MS said they fixed some issues and done some changes... are you going to "upgrade" over the top of a beta game with another install of a "fixed" version?

Hi!

Since here came Windows 8, came 8GadgetPack.
I have now Windows 10.1511 Pro x64 and installed 8GadgetPack 20.0.
When I was downloading gadgetpack, there was note that some gadgets will not work with Windows 10.1607.
I updated not, but have problem with SlideShow gadget.
Images slideshow is ok, shuffle, transition, correct folder, next & previous are ok.
But when I click at button View it displays not full picture.
It looks that any action is performed 'cause on taskbar blinks button but it's less than second to identify.
I browsed scripts written for gadget and its settings, no any program association to view picture.
So, it looks like uses default image viewer of Windows...
I set as default viewer JPEGImage and I'm satisfied.
It looks like cosmetic fix, but my slideshow is not photo folder, there are many times important graphic files and I can't access them by gadget, I must to find them manually. So, it looks bit useless.
If is this not possible to fix, I change folder to nice photos from holiday...

Thank you all.

I'm trying to help a friend who has just installed Office 2016 on her computer, which was recently upgraded from Win7 to Win10.

She's been using Outlook.com and has accumulated a fair amount of email, contacts and calendar appointments. I've managed to get her email to show up by adding it to Outlook 2016 as a POP3 account. I was able to import her contacts into Outlook 2016 from a file called OutlookContacts.csv. Now I'm trying to get her calendar with all its many calendars and appointments into Outlook 2016.

I'm not sure why but the appointments all show up just fine in Mail and Calendar for Windows 10, even though we did nothing to put them there (as far as we know). But she'd like them to appear when she clicks on the Calendar in Outlook 2016 and I can't find any information on how to do that. I've also looked for some kind of Export function in the Mail and Calendar for Windows 10 app but I came up empty.

How do I get her calendar into Outlook 2016?

I can't be the only one who finds Microsoft *awful* at documenting this kind of basic functionality. Millions of people must have tried to do the same thing before me but if there's any information out there on how to do this, it has eluded me so far....

A:Export calendar from Mail and Calendar for Windows 10 to Outlook 2016?

You can manually export calendars from Outlook.com using a round-a-bout method I posted at this link. However, I don't think that's going to help you because what you really want to do is set up Outlook 2016 so that her email, calendar and contacts sync with (and stay in sync with) her Outlook.com account.

Therefore, instead of setting email up as a POP account and then importing calendar, contacts, etc. separately, why not just setup Outlook 2016 to work with her Outlook.com account? I haven't done it with Outlook 2016, only older Outlook versions that used Hotmail Connector, however the following instructions for Outlook 2016 seem fairly straight forward.

https://support.office.com/en-us/art...7-76d60b148b23
If she has two-factor authentication switched on for her Outlook.com account, then you may need to generate an app password from her Outlook.com account, and use that as the password instead of the actual Microsoft Account password.

The Basics
Using Windows 10 Calendar (Outlook) as my primary calendar. The calendar contains two accounts, my Microsoft Live Account and my Gmail Account. In the left panel, I have the Gmail Calendar checked ? the Outlook calendar is unchecked. When I add an event, the default dropdown is my Gmail calendar which is what I want as my default.
My Problem
Events that I add to my calendar show up in both my Outlook calendar and my Gmail calendar as expected ? or maybe not quite as expected. I?ve just discovered that if I add an event several months in the future, it momentarily appears on my Outlook calendar and then is deleted (I see a brief deleted message appear). If I then go directly to my Gmail calendar, the event I just added shows up as expected. As of today (March 24), the cutoff date when the Windows/Outlook calendar automatic deletes begin to occur is September 7 (or 167 days from now). I haven?t yet experimented to see if the cutoff date moves forward every day.
Very strange. Anybody know what?s going on. If you have a similar calendar setup as mine, give it a try and see if your experience is the same. By the way, my Windows 10 system is fully updated.

Hello everybody,
my online outlook calendar does not sync with my Windows Calendar app. I am talking about the online calendar which can be accessed after sign-in here: Prihláste sa do svojho konta Microsoft which for me used to always take all the information from my desktop calendar app, and vice-versa, when I entered an event online, it also appeared in my desktop app. This was useful for syncing with my phone and generally accessing my calendar when not having my laptop on me. This is now impossible for me to do.

Now they don't sync and it's quite annoying, I am getting desperate and thinking of using some other app (if you have tips, tell me. I went through this: Resolve sync issues in Mail and Calendar apps in Windows 10 - Office Support it did not solve the problem. I have updates on (I apply them manually). I have Windows 10 all up to date. and all settings allow calendar to be synced. I checked if I am signed in to the same account, I only have one account in the app and the same one online.

Thank you in advance for any help.

Also, I am adding a picture if it helps, on the left is my calendar, when I access it online, on the right is my Windows App. You can clearly see that there is a lot more on the right. I just want the events to appear in the online calendar as well, as they did before...

If I enter an appointment on the native calendar app it is not pushing these appointments to other devices or even the browser outlook.com calendar view. Should it be doing so? It works the other way around. So if I enter an appointment on my phone (iOS) using the outlook setup on the calendar it does push the appointment to the calendar app on Windows 10. Just not other way round!

Ok, correction - it does work. Just took a while to push them out. About 30 minutes to come through. Pretty slow but at least it did it. Maybe servers are slow although I'm sure it's pretty instant the other way round !

I have been using Outlook 2003 for many years then upgraded to 2007, which I've used for years.

Typically I would enter appointments into my calendar in my Outlook 2007 and sync that with my phone....the blueberry or iPhone 3GS....I upgraded to the iPhone4 and have put appointments into my iPhone and synced my iPhone using iTunes (which normally syncs my Outlook calendar as well).

However, I've noticed recently some appt's put into my phone were not showing up on my Outlook Calendar....more snooping and I've just tonight discovered I have another calendar named iSync-Calendar.ics! Well, that's where many of my missing appointments were found!!

So I look closer at my iPhone4 and go to settings>calendar> and look for my default calendar which is iSync-Calendar.ics!!!

I am assuming that somehow that got switched, but used to be "calendar" which was outlook.

I am hoping this doesn't happen in the future..but for now I'm displaying both Calendar and iSync-Calendar.ics on Outlook so I can see all my appointments!!

Glad I caught that tonight as I have double and tripled booked some time slots in the future not seeing them on my iPhone since default calendar was iSynch and NOT calendar and vice versa!!!

Do you think I corrected the problem? Can I sync the iSync appts into or import them into my Calendar??

Hi,

Have been trying for a while to sync windows 10 calendar on my laptop with windows 10 calendar on my wife's laptop. No luck so far.

I have linked both individual windows 10 calendars with our individual google calendars, and events transfer successfully from both windows 10 calendars, through both google calendars, but will not download to the other windows 10 calendar.

Is that clear?

What I am trying to say is that I can create an event on my windows 10 calendar, it transfers to my google calendar, and then to my wife's google calendar, but it does not load on to my wife's windows 10 calendar. This works both ways.

Help will be very much appreciated. Please note that while I use my laptop a great deal I have little insight into the technicalities. It's a tool!

Hello,

I uploaded my school calendar to my google calendar so I can see it in my android phone but i had to delete it because there was a problem with it. When I try to upload it again I get the following error message :"Failed to import events: Some of the events in this file were not imported because you had imported them to Google Calendar before. Other events in this file have been imported.."

I have looked around online and some people said to open the file with text edit and delete the "UID." I did that but it did not help. Other people say to create another calendar and share it but that is also giving me problems.

Does anyone know how to get around this problem. I really need to have my calendar in my personal calendar that I have for my google account so I can keep my self sane and not get lost in grad school. Thank you for all your help.

Outlook 2007 running under Exchange server. We have a shared calendar used by all employees to show when they will be out of the office... vacations, part time, etc.

We also have Resource Mailboxes in Exchange so that when you click on the "Rooms" button when setting up an appointment, you can see the room schedule, then add your appointment to the room by inviting the room as an attendee.

The boss wants to do something similar with the shared calendar. When she puts an appointment on her private calendar that will take her out of the office, she wants to be able to press the equivalent of the "Rooms" button and have that appointment be automatically copied to the shared calendar so that everyone can see that she will be out of the office.

I've been trying to do a web search but unfortunately the search terms I have been using keeps telling me how to set up calendars, not how to pull off this trick.

Here's my problem. I would like to use the reccurence (weekly) feature on windows calendar and to be able to write into the Notes section but to have that information not repeat each week.

To explain with an example. I'm a teacher, so I have some lessons that repeat at the same time each week. I.e. 730-900 on Mondays. Obviously, the weekly reccurence feature is ideal for this, but only if I have write notes independently week to week. As it seems now, when i write notes on, let's say - the 7th of November - the same notes will be written on all other days that event repeats on.

There must be a way to have a reoccuring event but still be able to make some specific adjustments to each date, right?

Hi folks,

I'm using MS Project 2003, and I'm having a couple of difficulties with the relationship between the calendar view and the gantt chart:

The calendar is placing some tasks on non-working days;

MS Project 2003 seems to not have a facility for assigning recurring tasks to "business days only". This causes me to have to set a recurring task as close to the day in the month I think the task will fall each month and then go into each month and manually move the task to the 13th business day (or whatever is the actual requirement). It is so common for recurring deadlines to be on business days rather than calendar days, I am surprised that Project's "recurring tasks" dialogue box has only a "x day" of the month (rather than x business day of the month" option. Can one set recurring tasks in Project on the basis of business days?;

When I set up my project in MS Project, I specified working days to run from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., however, when I view the project report it sees working days as running from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.. This suggests to me that, somehow, the gantt chart and task list are not wedded firmly to the calendar view. Can someone help?;

MS Project is displaying some distinct tasks as separate tasks along the same Gantt Chart bar. For example, tasks, x, y, and z occur on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday every month, and they are displayed in the Gantt Chart on the same line of the same month running in direct s... Read more

Hi Friends,
I'm using Windows XP Home sp3, fully updated, and Works 2002 version 6. (I know it's an old version, but it's all I've got for now.) The Works Calendar doesn't display holidays, none at all. I can't imagine why anything called a "calendar" would be made without holidays by default, but I'm guessing this allows holidays of different countries and cultures to be set up.

Anyway, I found in the Edit menu > Add Holidays. I choose the holidays I want displayed, and click OK. But none are displayed.

I found in the Windows Works Discussion Group a recent message about adding holidays, where it was suggested that an internet search for for iCal holidays would turn up a file that could be downloaded, and imported into the calendar, that would add the holidays. But after searching and trying to download, that file turns out to be an ICS filetype which is incompatible with Windows .

So I'm hoping someone here will be able to advise me about adding Holidays to the Works Calendar? However at this point, I would even appreciate knowing about any free calendar programs which don't rely on advertising in order to be offered for free. For example, I'm hoping there's an Open Source solution.

Thanks for your help, I really appreciate it

I work in a two person office and the calendar program that we use is Outlook. We have another office accross the country and they also use Outlook calendars. My problem is that in our building we had to set up pop and smtp servers for our mail (due to the way this building set up) which means that there is no way to share our calendars since you need to have microsoft exchange server. The other office is able to share since they use the MS exchange server.
Im just wondering if anyone knows of a way around this? I need to be able to share calendars with my boss and not just use his pc when he isnt using it. And it would be nice to share with our other office too. But since we are restricted by the way this building has stuff set up (??? dont ask) Im thinking that the only way around this is to start fresh and get another calendar program that will work for all of us.
Does anyone know of a good calendar program that has a share/delagate feature? It would be nice to find something that I could easily transfer everything that we have in outlook to the new calendar program. Theres about 3000 contacts that will need to be moved as well as emails etc.
Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks again Microsoft - for another game of monopoly! We wont go there!!! Thanks!

When I make an all day entry, like a birthday for example, and I view the calendar folder for a month, the appointment spans two days - the day of the appointment itself and the day after it, and the box that contains the appointment is bookended by clock icons.

If I open the appointment, click on recurrence, click OK (did not change anything), click Save and Close, the display will appear "normal" -- meaning it spans the day of the event, without the clocks on the sides.

When she sends the same email to me via POP3 email, the attachment is simply a forwarded email message, with the vcalendar text as the email body.

When I forward her a calendar entry, she receives it properly.

Is this an Outlook configuration issue, or an issue of Exchange vs POP3 message processing?

The only other thing I use from M. works is a spreadsheet which still opens fine.

I can't find any way to make the calendar run.

Hello,
I am helping a friend migrate from Windows XP with old applications to a new computer Windows 7 Pro 32 bit. I am trying to make the transition simple for him, so transferring as much of the old applications as possible. The one that is kicking my behind right now is the Calendar in Microsoft Works v9. Installation of MS Works v9 on the new computer did not present any problems, so both computers have the same version.

What should have worked is to simply copy the mswkscal.wcd file from old computer to new computer. It partially worked, but not well enough to be useable. The old computer has calendar event items that go back to 2001, so there is a lot of sentimental and historical information to be preserved. There were 3 significant things that I observed.
1. The name on the calendar tab started out as "My Calendar" on both computers, but changing it did not solve any problems.
2. There are no events displayed in the calendar view screen, none at all. When I opened the "Reminders" view then there were several items listed for the current date, just like they should be shown. So the events are there somewhere, but cannot be seen. When I opened one of those items on the Reminder list, it did have the proper Recurrence information.

I do not know Ms Works too well but I believe it can export to an ICS file (*.ics). The Outlook.com calendar (former Windows Live Calendar) at https://calendar.live.com supports importing ICS files, so I would at least try that first and then see and decide if it would be the right time to let Works retire. To use Outlook.com calendar you need a Microsoft Account (Hotmail, Live, MSN or Outlook.com email).
Step 1: Export Works calendar as *.ics file
Step 2: Go to https://calendar.live.com, click Import:
Step 3: Select Import into a new calendar, browse to your *.ics file, click Import

Hi this is quite wierd.
Using outlook you can view other users calendars over a network depending on that users delegate settings.

for some reason when 1 user tries to view a certain calendar it comes up blank yet everyone else can see it fine, and the user who is having the problem can view everyone else's fine too.

I have tried re-creating her outlook profile and even her windows profile, any ideas??

I've got a client who is using microsoft works 8.0 calendar and recently had to replace his hard drive and reinstall his operating system. The problem we're having is that all of his calendar data is stored as a .wcd file and the calendar will only import icalendar files and vcalendar files .ics and .vcs. Is there anyway to convert the data file from .wcd to .ics or is there a way to get the calendar to read a .wcd file? He is using Windows XP, service pack 2. All of my searching on Google lead me nowhere. Microsoft's website was no help either. If a .wcd file is from an older version of Works calendar, where can you get that version of works? Any help on the matter will be greatly appreciated.

I would really appreciate some help with a problem that I have with Outlook 2002 that I did not have with Outlook 2000.

In the calendar, I click on a date to get the "event" box and type the item in the subject line and press "enter". The item in the calendar date box then shows up with "12:00" in front of it rather than with no time. If before pressing "enter", I open the "recurrence" box and close it, then there is no "12:00" but by default the item is repeated weekly with no end date. To get just one event listed on the correct day with no "12:00" I have to put a "1" in the "end after" "occurrence" box.

Can someone please tell me how to set up the calendar so that I don't need this elaborate work around? Many thanks!

Methinks you can set the "default" calendar time for an event. Why not try changing it? Just a thought. I don't have Outlook 2002 on my PC. Why? I HATED IT!!

So, this is about the integration between the two, of course. I have added the WL feed to OC and it appears there. Every task appears as an "all day" event. Then I uncheck the "all day" box, enter the respective time and make my schedule. And then, I guess at the next refresh from the WL feed, all events are back to "all day" :( Does anybody know how to deal with this? Or any reasonable way to put WL tasks into a(ny) calendar without having to jump through hoops? Thanks in advance!

When I import my Works Calendar appointments to a Home Publishing Calendar it doesn't transfer the appointment times. I have to go in and manually enter the times of the appointments. This is on a month calendar. Can anyone help me?
