    It's a sorry state of affairs when a website is better and more functional than dedicated software running on your local PC, but unfortunately that's the case with the Windows 10 Mail, Calendar and Contacts apps. You need to go to Outlook.com for more advanced features.

    To import a calendar you can go to the Calendar on Outlook.com and then select 'Import' to import ics calendar files.

    To export your calendar for backup purposes its a bit trickier, but still possible.

    1) Go to the Calendar on Outlook.com and then select 'Share'.

    2) Then 'Get a link'.

    3) Then 'Create'.

    4) Then copy the link that starts with webcals://. Paste that link into a browser address bar, change the beginning of the URL from webcals:// to https:// then hit enter. The browser will then prompt you to download the ics file and save it.

    5) After you've saved it to your PC, go back into 'Share', find the sharing link that you created and remove permissions again so that the calendar isn't shared anymore.

    As a bonus, to export your Contacts from the People App for backup purposes. Go to Contacts on Outlook.com and then select 'Manage'. Then choose one of the two export options. This will allow you to create a backup and save them in csv file format.

    Thank you D3LL.

    When I opened Win 10's Calendar, I could not find a way to get to 'File Export' as described in the link you provided. Do you know how to do this?

    Thanks again.
