Windows 8/Window 8 Calendar function
Thank you for volunteering on this site!
I have Windows 8 on a Dell laptop. I am using the generic calendar that came with the computer and I just learned, to my horror, that the appts three months back are deleted or at least I cannot see them. Is there an easy way for me to access/retrieve those appts? Also, is there any place I could instruct the system NOT to delete my appts ever?!
Thanking you very much in advance!
Thanks for your question.
First of all, if you have only windows 8 and not windows 8.1. please update first, Because you have to update to Windows 8.1 and Windows 8.1 Update 2 nowadays to still receive free updates for your system. They also fix bugs and maybe this solves your calendar problem as well.
Please check if you have Windows 8.1 by:
Windows key & R and enter "winver" and run it to see what windows version you have at the moment.
If it says Verison 6.2 then you still have Windows 8
Windows 8.1 and Windows 8.1 Update 1 and 2 are like the Service Packs of older WIndows versions.
Here is how to update from Windows 8 to Windows 8.1: http://pcsupport.about.com/od/windows-8/ss/how-to-update-to-windows-8-1.htm
To Update Windows 8.1. to Update 1 and Update 2 use Windows Update Service: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-8/windows-update-faq
please notice that it could be that you need to run Windows Update Service more than once.
The calendar app problem has been discusssed here so maybe this helps: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows8_1-ecoms/calendar-app-o
