Windows 10: Cannot create a new event in Calendar App

    Cannot create a new event in Calendar App


    Hi, I can't find anyone else with this problem anywhere on the internet.

    My calendar app opens fine. I did the setup with adding accounts and I can view the calendar perfectly in any way I want (by month, day, etc.). As far as I can tell, everything is working except for the New Event button.

    This is what it looks like:

    Click image for larger version. 

Name:	Calendar.JPG 
Views:	2 
Size:	47.8 KB 
ID:	34888

    The New Event button looks highlighted, even though my mouse is nowhere near that window. When I do mouse over it, nothing happens. If I mouse over the numbers on the calendar below it, they do get highlighted, but the New Event button does not. It's as though there's nothing there at all.

    A calendar's useless to me if I can't put events on it. If I wanted to just see the chart, I'd just click the time on the taskbar.

    Is anyone having the same problem/Does anyone know what's wrong? Or perhaps if there is an app in the Windows Store (for free) that functions like this one should? I tried to find one, but they were all "view-only" calendars.

    Thanks,
    Feolkieer

    Hi Feolkieer,

    I too had this problem and it took a while to find the cause (in my case anyway). Go to Settings / Privacy / Calendar and ensure the 'Let apps access my calendar' switch is set to 'On'. Two other switches on the tab should also be set to 'On': 'App connector' and 'Mail and Calendar'. Once these were set my calendar could be interacted with and I could set an event. Hope this works for you.
