i had just started playing with win 10 calander before the anniversary update installed. Now i can't get rid of the junk i put on there--3 which were done daily for a year
any help[ is appreciated thanks
Hello, try re-registering it: use the command for
Calendar and Mail
here:Apps - Reinstall and Re-register in Windows 8 and 10 - Windows 10 Forums
If that doesn't work try uninstalling it
(To remove Calendar and Mail app from current account only)
Get-AppxPackage *windowscommunicationsapps* | Remove-AppxPackage
Apps - Reinstall and Re-register in Windows 8 and 10 - Windows 10 Forums
and reinstalling it from the Store.
Take the opportunity to have a look at the Tutorial section.. can help with many issues.
that did not work. It just reloaded user data. is it possible to delete user data for the calander.
thanks for the help
Ok, you could try this, but note it seems Mail and Calendar are very closely linked, so data for Mail should be here too.
So consider the possible consequences.
Make a backup of the folder below before doing anything.
Data is supposed to be stored here. How exactly I don't know.
You can explore that and try to work out what should be deleted to remove data from the Calendar.
Otherwise you need to research that or hope someone else is able to advise.

is it possible to install calendar without adding the user data
If you know where the data is stored, you should be able to remove the calendar (and mail) and delete the user data which as far as I know is kept in the same folder. Not something I've tried personally as I don't generally use universal apps.... too may issues, or too limited, or I have a solution I'm happy with.

i still have the the old calendar event on the pc
any other ideas
1. Do you have that data synced? If so, it will be restored.
2. You could create a new user and transfer to that.
I don't use universal apps 'cos they tend to be restricted and because I don't want problems like this...!
You can research further on how and where the data is held.
what calender and pim do you use
i can't get another user acct for me unless i get a new email adderss
Hi, you can create a local user (no email address required). MS don't make that so easy- you have to read the prompts carefully. They are determined to try to make people use live ids. That would certainly make sure you are not synching to anything!
I use a very simple freeware desktop calendar with configurable pop-up reminders and repeat events UK's Kalender (UK is the programmer's initials). There will be better ones somewhere.
MS's calendar is clearly designed to be linked with other devices and other software, and so offer a more integrated approach. But being a universal app, it's unfamiliar in terms of poking around and problem solving compared to traditional desktop programs.
I don't use a pim..

I'm running right now WIN10 version 10586 (activated of course) on my laptop.
I want to manually update to the aniversary update (14393), and I've thought it's the right timing to also do a full format & reinstall WIN10 on the way.

Reguarly I check for updates: the last system one was on 10 Aug 2016: "Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1511 for x64-based Systems (KB3176493)".
