By clicking the New Task or New appointment button, you open a new, and empty, appointment that you can add to your Windows Calendar.


Enter info about the appointment.

In the Details pane, you can enter information about the task or appointment, including whether Windows Calendar should remind you about the item.

If you click anywhere outside of the New Task/New Appointment pane, the item appears in your daily calendar.


Click the View button.

When you click the View button, you can cycle through the views, or click the down-arrow on the View button to choose a view, such as Month or Week.

If you want to share your calendar, you can choose Share→Publish and enter a URL for the location where you want to publish your calendar online. You can even make a setting so that any changes to the calendar are automatically published online.

You can import a calendar you create in another program, such as Outlook by choosing File→Import. In the resulting Import dialog box, enter the name of the file, and choose whether to create a new calendar, or integrate the calendar entries into another calendar.
