Windows 10: Lost option to color categorize entries in Windows 10 calendar.

  1.    16 Aug 2017 #1

    Lost option to color categorize entries in Windows 10 calendar.


    Not sure what happened but I used to be able to categorize events with colors. The option came up by right clicking but now when I right click I only get the options Show As and Delete. Older items that I categorized are still showing in their respective colors. This issue started yesterday.
    Thanks for any assistance.

    Same problem here. Completely messed up my system - back to school tomorrow and am going to find it hard to keep track of all my students/classes.

    I still have the issue. No one has responded here so I'll try a couple of other forums and if I find a fix I'll report back here. Maybe you could too. Remember : Two beers are better than one. Or something like that :)

    Apparently Windows dropped the feature.

    I am currently searching for an alternative app now.

    I have found a work around:

    You can enter the events in (or edit them later for the colour) in outlook live which is free. The coloured events sync with the app.
