If I add any events to my google calendar, I don't get any indications that they have synched to windows calendar, I press the time date in the lower right corner, when it opens a wheel spins but no change takes place. I have to manually open the mail program for changes to synch, and if I close the program synching will stop again. Hi, My issue is that I have to open the calendar program for windows to sync my changes to google calendar. I have enabled email and calendar: to run in the background, notifications, to run on start up, access contacts. If I click on the time panel in the task bar when the calendar opens a wheel spins but no changes appear in the calendar.
