Is there a way to sync Windows 10 taskbar calendar with the new outlook app?

Marcus Dudáš 0 Reputation points


I switched to New Outlook on a machine thats running Windows 10 but I had to switch back to Callendar app because the taskbar callendar on the right bottom corner is no longer working with the calendar within the New Outlook app. Im a student so when theres a new assignment or exam coming nearby i immediately fill it in the calendar on the taskbar. In the callendar app everything is great! Because Callendar app synchronises not only with gmail accounts but also with the Personal account of the windows!

New Outlook doesnt do that - and so, i cant see the events i added using the taskbar callendar and I have no way to access those events - and im curious what will happen after the Calendar app will be discontinued.

It is honestly a dealbreaker so big it kind of forces me to buy a new device and I will buy a macbook just out of spite towards this. Why is Microsoft forcing us to something that is not even integrated with one of their 2 biggest OS they have...

P.S. I doubt the AI answer is even remotely correct and if it is indeed correct then Microsoft is doing begginer mistakes... Switching to mac if thats right

    Unfortunately, it is not currently possible to sync the Windows 10 taskbar calendar with the new Outlook app. The taskbar calendar only syncs with the Calendar app, which is why you were able to see your events there but not in the new Outlook app. However, you can still access your events in the Calendar app until it is discontinued.

    Hi @Marcus Dudáš ,

    Thanks for your reply!

    Looks like your Mail & Calendar Apps have been Replaced with New Outlook for Windows, you can refer to this article to learn more about New Outlook: Mail & Calendar Apps Will Be Replaced with New Outlook for Windows December 2024.

    It seems the problem is that the New Outlook doesnt even have implemented synchronisation with the windows account itself, meaning that if i create some new item on the taskbar callendar - it writes it on the windows account that is not accessible in the new outlook.

    According to your description, you can try to add the windows account to New Outlook to check if the calendar will sync.

    On the other hand, if you prefer to use the previous Mail and Calendar apps, you can go back to the current Mail and Calendar apps by clicking the toggle in the new Outlook for Windows.
