Hello!

I would like to know how I could get my iCloud calendar on the Calendar metro app. I have already synched it to Outlook and no problem.

I also added my iCloud account on the mail metro app and it seems to work fine, but when I go to calendars, the only one I have is the Windows one.

I have been looking all over the Internet for solutions but none have worked for me so far...

So...I can connect the iCloud account just fine in account settings.  However, it doesn't show up in Calendar or Mail as an account I can view, yet it still shows up as properly connected in Settings.  Suggestions?  A quick google hasn't helped as it just suggested workarounds that result in read-only (not ideal) or things Ive already tried with no luck.

A:iCloud and Windows 10 native Calendar/Mail app

Posting solution here.  If you have 2-step verification enabled on iCloud, you must log into iCloud -> account -> security/password -> generate app specific password and use that for Windows.  It synced immediately after deleting and relinking iCloud account with that new app specific password.

After installing Windows 10 I lost my Icloud contacts and calendar ability in Outlook . This is the error message :
The set of folders cannot be opened. The information store cannot be opened.
Icloud is on and also clicked on in Add-ins. Other Icloud functions like Onenote work.

I currently use Outlook 2010 because I have a paid license but I'm willing to upgrade.

This works Ok with iCloud but what I don't like is that I can't make my icloud calendar the default in Outlook so I don't get reminders on my PC. What I end up doing is manually copying critical appointments from my icloud calendar to my Outlook default calendar if I want to be sure to get a reminder on my PC!. This isn't ideal though. Does anyone have a better solution? I read that the latest Outlook 2016 doesn't sync at all so I can't upgrade Office. I wish MS and Apple would decide to work together instead of trying to defeat each other!!

I believe icloud will sync with windows 10 mail and calendar apps - is that true?

I've also heard of emclient being good but haven't tried it.

I'd really appreciate any input.

I have Windows 7 Ultimate and MicroSoft Office 10 on my desktop computer, use Outlook for email and contacts, used to use the Outlook calendar till I got an iPhone 5S a few months ago, so now my calendar is the iCloud calendar, viewed in Outlook. The notes section of iCloud calendar entries uses very tiny font that is barely visible. I cannot find a way to change the font in the iCloud calendar in Outlook. There is no "format text" tab in the iCloud calendar to choose font type and size, like there is in the Outlook calendar. I spoke to Apple, who said this is a MicroSoft issue. I don't find anything regarding this when I Google "font size icloud calendar". I realize I can highlight the notes and make them larger with the mouse so I can read them on the desktop, but I would prefer to set my default font as a larger size.

Does anyone have any suggestions? I appreciate any help I can get.

I have switched to Windows 10 for mail and calendars as Outlook was taking too long to load. I have set up my gmail account for mail and all is working fine. However I use iCloud for my calendars and want to see my iCloud calendars in Windows 10.

However I am having problems setting up my iCloud account in Windows 10. I enter the relevant details but the "looking for your settings" process never completes. Could this be because I use the same email address for Gmail and my Apple ID?

I suspect I'm making a basic error but would welcome any suggestions. Thank you.

Hi All

Silly question time, is there a way of setting options on the Metro style tiles to say use different providers for the default news and sports news etc or to govern where and what they point to?

A:Configuring METRO Tiles

Hello dlands, and welcome to Eight Forums.

Each Store app, like a desktop program, will have it's own settings. In some Store apps, you can right click on, swipe down from top, swipe up from bottom, or open the "Settings" charm while the app is open to make changes to it's settings, permissions, etc....
For the News app, you could right click on or swipe down from top to be able to select Sources to then select the source of news you like but it doesn't appear to be a way to change what displays on the live tiles other than the default Bing.


Hope this helps some,
Shawn

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.

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...

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.

Is that clear?

...."Whereas before (Update) I could go to the Metro UI start a metro program, then suspend it by dragging the window to the bottom of the screen, and then I would return to the Metro UI start screen.
"Now if I go to Metro, run a metro app, then close the app, I get kicked back to the traditional desktop.
The behavior before Update 1 was such that I could stay in Metro after closing a Metro app. Now no matter what I do, including unchecking the "when I sign in or close all apps on a screen, go to the desktop instead of start" in the taskbar properties, I get kicked back to the desktop."

When I access outlook on the web, I have the option of creating a new calendar. I use this to separate the type of events I put on my calendar. I have the holiday one, of course, but I also have one I use to keep all my school classes and events in, so they're a different color than everything else. I then just made one for 'special' events, because I've got an increasing amount of such events, like musical dates, opera dates, my nephew's boy scout events, etc, that I want to have show up separate from my classes. I want to be able to filter which sort of events show up, and I can on outlook.com. That's not my problem. I just click 'new calendar' and I can customize these sort of events.
However, the problem shows up when I go to the calendar app for windows 10. I use it a lot- a LOT -and it does show different calendars on the side bar. It's got my main outlook calendar, my 'birthday calendar', and the holiday calendar to choose from. I can filter one out, or let them all show up, etc. But those are the only three that show up. My 'special events' calendar and my 'classes' don't show up on the sidebar there. I thought maybe I just needed to wait until it automatically synced with outlook, but when it did, all my classes and special events disappeared completely.

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.

Hi there,

Can anyone,,,help??
We use the shared calender in Gmail for keeping track of company events etc. but at this stage we need something better as we have more events to keep track of and more departments getting involved etc. Is there anyway of making the basic Gmail calendar into an updateable spreadsheet calendar that can be accessed by the entire office and/or specific department?

This is all new to me so really glad to get any advice.

Cheers

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!

A:Mail and calendar app not pushing calendar entries to other devices

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 wanted to get an opinion or a knowlege of what seetings the laptop needs to be, for iCloud to function properly? Maybe the settings on the other end as well, have to be adjusted to accept a PC system?
 
At this point, I am having screen resolution & color issues. Seems when I open the iCloud program, the screen switches & the colors & resolution go to a negative & cartoonish appearance.

Up til now, I have been happily syncing my iPhone4 and iPad2 with MS Outlook 2007 via my PC x iTunes.

Somehow, I recall choosing an option somewhere to use iCloud "cos it sounded OK" but now when I try to sync the devices on iTunes, it tells me that I cannot do this anymore as it is being done on iCloud and I will have duplicate contacts and all sorts of dire problems.

At the risk of being old fashioned, how do I get rid of iCloud and go back to the procedure first mentioned in Para one ..........?

I feel much happier with it and not having vast numbers of contacts, appontments etc. would prefer to leave iCloud out of it for the moment.

How do I do this thanks?

I'm trying to install iCloud on my Windows XP Pro (SP3) PC. Officially it's supported only for Vista and later, but this hack is widely claimed to work:1.

My boss and I used me.com very successfully for his calendar and contacts, but awhile back when he upgraded he was moved to icloud.com, and I can no longer access the site from work. It is not blocked by the firewall, and the browser (firefox) works fine going to any other site. The error I get is: The proxy server is refusing connections.
Nothing has been changed on the browser settings and the browser works fine otherwise. I'm lost without access to this site.
 

A:Can't access icloud.com

I can get to that site with both my Opera and Firefox browsers but, when I do, it makes it clear that I will need a device (iphone or iPad?) with iOS 5 or a Mac computer with OS X to setup my Apple ID and access it.

I don't know anything about proxy servers but it sounds like it is something your workplace setup or ISP may be using. Is there anyone in your office that deals with techie stuff who might be able to help?

Another possibility is that using the Windows version of Apple's Safari browser might help, but that's complete guesswork on my part; http://www.apple.com/safari/ (although it does state that it works with iCloud).

Anyway, took it to the local computer nerd store & they say that iCloud is changing the resolution. The service tech went right in & adjusted the resolution through iCloud, but when clicked on again, the resolution & the colors invert.
I wonder if it makes a difference of what browser that is used, to download iCloud on?

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.

Information greatly appreciated. TIA.

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.

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??

Is there any good instructions for configuring W7? Like getting rid of unneccessary features that run in the background such as Windows Firewall or whatever. That way, the OS can use minimum resources.

A:Configuring Windows 7

Hello crimson

There are tweaks and hacks available if you search for them but many here, me included would suggest Windows 7 is set up as lean and efficient as it is out of the box so to speak. There's no real need to mess around with the OS and chances are you will do more harm than good in the long term. Often disabling services etc leads to more problems down the line than it does in gaining you any performance.

Vncserver runs on display :1 by default to not to interfere with the real display at :0. Try connecting to :1 or port 5901. In your VNC client put in the address yourhost:1 or yourhost:5901 or yourhost::5901 depending on the client version.
You will get a separate X session, not a copy of the real X desktop on the server.

If you want to share the real X desktop on your server then you should install the VNC X module. How to do it depends on your Linux and X version and what packages you have available.

I suggest you wait. Wait overnight if required. If its still configuring at the end of that time, heres what you can do:

1. Hold down the power button and switch of your machine
2. Restart your computer and just before windows boots hit the F8 button
3. Boot into safe mode
4. login
5. Make sure that any virus scanners at this point are disabled before continuing
6. Click "Start" > "Accessories" > "System Restore"
7. Click "Next"
8. Pick a restore point and then click next, (pick one before you started the update)
9. Click next and follow the prompts and it will start a system restore
10. Wait till your computer finishes the System Restore process

Once you have recovered from the trauma, change the windows updates settings to download but not install. Then install one by one or in small batches.

My Dell XPS 8700, I bought from Dell has been a pretty good machine. But then I started seeing the modem failing to initialize. It would do this for so long, I'd have to get up an walk away for awhile. Other times only a system restore would fix it, but even that wasn't guaranteed. I noticed when I gave up and finally just want to reboot that it would hang on "Windows is shutting down," but never would. My last resort then is to do a hard shut down. Only problem then is that it would hang on "Please wait while your computer is updating." Only it would never boot back up. If it leave it like this overnight then sometimes I wake up to the desktop but the modem is still not engaged. The modem is a cable modem and it was JUST changed out to a newer one about three weeks ago. But this intermittent problem has been going on for well over a year.

Hi Susana.

You'll be best off by uninstalling your antivirus for two reasons.

1) To fix your Windows Update issue.
2) To make the machine work as intended, as right now, it obviously cannot.

It is also best to use the removal tool from the antivirus maker's website after normal uninstall.

You can try your luck with another antivirus solution, but Windows does already include one by default. It is enabled by default but installing other antivirus solutions turns it off.

To turn it on again, type services.msc in the Start screen then press Enter. Set Windows Defender and Windows Firewall to Automatic and start them too.

Delete all the contents in this folder: C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download

Reboot and try your Windows Update again.

Is there a way (when I send a link to someone so they can download my files) that they can download a whole folder, rather than image by image. I've made a folder and put photos in that folder. I sent a link to myself to see how it worked. When the link is clicked, it takes me to the images (rather than just the folder itself). From there, I can only download each one, one by one. This would take quite some time to do as most of what I'm uploading in a folder has as many as 50 images/photos.

I have windows 7 and outlook 2010 on a PC. When linking to icloud and enabling it to synch with icloud, icloud took the contacts off my computer (at least it seems that way). In trying to resolve the issue and talking with Apple and Omnitech, a variety of solutions were tried. I now have all my contacts in the right categories showing up on my PC, but it appears that they are not on the PC but in the cloud. My goal is to copy one of my categories, mailing list, into a  new separate folder in the folder list in order to use it to merge with Word and make labels. In the past, I could right click on the mailing list category and drag it to the new folder that I created. It would then ask if I wanted it to copy the file there or move it. I copied it to the new folder and then was able to merge it with word. Currently, when I try to drag the file to the folder, it indicates that this action can not be done. It appears to me that the reason this is occurring is that the contact file is in the cloud not on the computer.  ?? I would like to create a file with my contacts on the PC with the contacts in the right categories and not duplicating what is currently showing up from the cloud. I believe once I do this I will again be able to copy the category to the new folder.

Hey...

So I have a few questions involving Windows Mail, and was wondering if you guys would be able to help...

I have 3 different e-mail accounts (1 hotmail, 1 from college, and 1 is a Microsoft Exchanger Server).

1) How do I setup my Microsoft Exchanger Server Account??

2) In the Inbox, is there a way to make it so that the e-mails are displayed by the week the e-mail was received(like Outlook does... ex.: "Today", "Yesterday", "Last Week", etc.)

3) Lastly, as of right now, my school e-mail address forwards all the e-mails I receive to my Hotmail e-mail address as well. If I setup both my Hotmail and school e-mail address in Windows Mail, will it remove duplicate e-mails??

Thanks for the help!

This is really annoying.Often ,when I start windows ,the setup process for scan begins.
I use HP DeskjetF300 series.The software for this printer(it has a scanner obviously and a photocopy function) works 100 % and there is no problem with it.Just this annoyance,which I believe is an issue with Windows XP.
It's also triggered when I use Daemon tools,image files(like .iso and such) or even when I use ordinary CD-s & DVD-s.Occaisonally when I use Word or PowerPoint.
When this setup process is triggered it requieres the HP CD with drivers,so I have to leave it in the DVD drive all the time just in case if windows "decides" to configure scan yet again.
As I understand it ,once you install any kind of software ,that should be it.Finished.No additional need for constant configuring of drivers.
So is there anything that can be done to finally make it stick?Or at least to turn it off somehow?
Thanks and A Happy New Year!

I've been diligent about not falling for the Windows 10 'invitation' on my main PC for almost a year. It finally snuck on. OK, might as well configure this thing right.
I've read over the past year that MS turns certain Big Brotherish kinda things on my default.
I seem to have a 'choice' to us express settings or my own. What's the best way to do this?

A:installing/configuring Windows 10

I have 3 PC's with Win 10 and even one with the advance "insider" versions. One of the PC's is a touch screen laptop. All 4 are set using express settings. One of the 4, my main PC, is also used for my recording studio. The DPC Latency Mon reports no problems and same with my recording studio software and hardware, no clicks, pops, dropouts, etc. There are user options that can be done, after its up and running, if desired.

Anyone have passed this exam recently and mind sharing the sources they used? After mastering the self paced training kit, and taking the exam, the book covered about 50% of the exam.

I took the exam two times, and got the same exact questions (no rewording or anything). I marked different answers on both exams and somehow still scored the same score (600/900, 700 to pass).

After taking the exam twice and memorizing a lot of questions, I was able to google and pull up about 90% of the questions I had on my exam. Comparing the questions to the Self Paced Training Kit, and the Sybex Windows 7 book, a lot of the answers provided in the questions weren't covered in neither books, or not enough in depth.

Just curious of some other study methods anyone else used while preparing for the exam.

Maybe this MS forum would be a good place to ask your question.

Okay, I have a small home network using a D-Link wireless router.

I have 3 boxes, 1 - WinXP, 2-WinServer2003, 3-WinServer2003

Right now they are setup and share an internet connection but that is about it.

box1 is my main PC for games and work and has a USB printer haooked to it.
box2 is my webserver
box3 will eventually be my webcrawler/email server

What I want to know is, can the 3 boxes share the 1 USB printer?
Also I would like to configure the network so all 3 boxes can access a shared network folder for passing files back and forth.

I am not a network guru by no means, it took me a while to get my current setup so any guidence is very appreciated, also the more 'dummy proof' the better.

So if anyone can tell me how to acheive this setup or point to some articles that can I would be very grateful.

Thanks,

I received 4 updates today and all 4 installed however one update KB961371 showed error 800703F9. While configuring updates it would show Stage 1 of 3-0%complete. Then it would show updates not configured propertly. I tried this several time, same results. I did a system restore and then tried installing only the security update, same results. After this I reinstalled the other 3 update with no problem. This is the first time I have had a update not to install. I am using AVG Internet Security 8.5 version, however I don't think this is the problem as I have received over 130 windows updates inthe past. I do have windows set to install updates automatically every day. I have contacted MS with this information but have not received a answer. To tell the truth I trust the forum more. I look up some information and this update applies to 2008 windows server Itanium-based system. I have a HP Pavilion s3120n with AMD 64 live processor. Comments welcome.

Hello gents..ladies.

I have an Acer Aspire laptop (8 months old)and I decided to reset it with the usual steps and it resets fine works great all fast and streamlined BUT I decide to download all the Windows updates to get the 8.1 etc. Well what do you know ?? Stuck in an endless loop of ..Failure configuring Windows features..Reverting changes do not blah blah blah.. So I let it run for about a hour NOPE so I powered off ( I know bad but pissed at this point) and it comes right back to the loop..Tried to boot to safe mode nope..can get to the BIOS. Didnt create a Recovery Disk of course...so any ideas ??..

Would like to do a clean install but dont have disk seein it was bought in WalMart....(I have the product key I think..)

Thank you..

A:Failure configuring Windows.

How many updates were there? To many at the same time would cause this problem. Let it finish the loop to come back to normal before doing anything. I recommend installing 5 updates at a time if there a lot.

I have configured Windows Updates on my Windows 10 Pro system using GPEdit to "Notify before downloading or installing any updates". Unless I am misunderstanding what this really means, it seems to be ignoring this setting. When I check for updates, it automatically starts the download and proceeds to do the install without asking. Am I wrong in my understanding of this setting that it should indicate that there are downloads available and ask me if I want to download and install the updates before actually doing them?

A:Configuring Windows Update

Hello John,

Yep, when using that option:

If you manually check for updates, then the updates will always be automatically downloaded and installed.

If you let Windows automatically check for updates and notify you when updates are available, then this policy will let you disable automatic updates.

I find that using OPTION FOUR in the tutorial below to set your network as a metered connection works best to stop automatic updates.
