Delete a calendar

Deleting a calendar is something incredibly simple to do, but you need to make sure that if you are going to do it, you are not gonna need any of the things that are written down there, since you might not be able to recover any of the information about the meetings and anything else like that.

So if you are complete sure that you are going to delete it, you just have to follow three simple steps that will not take too much of your time. You just have to click on Calendar in the Folder Pane, right-click on whatever it is the calendar and then simply click on Delete Calendar Is just that simple.

Why can’t I delete the calendar?

If when you decide to delete a calendar the little Delete Calendar option, looks grey instead of having the usual color this means that you cannot delete it. The reason for this might be because this is your primary calendar, and sadly if this is your primary calendar you will never be able to delete it.

But if you really don’t want to use it, you can simply hide it, or close it and use another one as the one you will consult whenever you need. This way it’s not gonna be completely gone, but this way it will not bother you anymore.

What to do if you can’t delete the Calendar?

If the calendar you want to delete is the primary one, like it was mentioned before, you will not be able to delete it, but there is one thing that you can do besides hide it so it doesn’t bother you anymore. You can simply remove all the items and information that it’s in this calendar, and then you hide it, so there will be nothing about this calendar that will bother you later.

Before you do this you need to remember to check everything that it’s in there, because everything from the birthday reminders to the meetings that you have in this calendar, will be completely removed so if there is something important here you don’t need to save, and if you do, save it and then you can delete it by following the steps we will list out below:

  • The first thing that you need to do is get into the Calendar, like you would normally do, and after you are there, click on View
  • After that simply go to the group that’s called Current view, and then click on Change View and click on List.
  • After that the thing that you need to do is click in the item list, and click the combination of Ctrl + A, and select all the items in the list, make sure that everything is there.
  • And after you’ve selected everything that you want to delete, make sure that there is nothing missing, or if there is not something in there that you might want to keep. And all you have to next after you’ve made sure of everything simply click on the little Delete button and then it will be over.
