Apple Calendar, formerly known as iCal, is a useful tool for managing multiple calendars in one place. However, over time, the number of calendars can become overwhelming, especially if you’re syncing them through several different internet accounts. In this post, we’ll show you how to eliminate unused calendars in Apple Calendar on your Mac.
To get started, open Apple Calendar and look over to the left-hand panel. If you don’t see this panel, click on “Calendars” in the top left corner to make it appear. Your calendars can be synced through several different internet accounts, including iCloud, Gmail, Google Apps, and Microsoft Exchange for work. Each account can have multiple calendars, which can be confusing.
To clean things up, identify the calendars that you use the most. For example, if you primarily use your work Google Apps account, focus on those calendars. Uncheck any unnecessary calendars to reduce clutter.
For example, let’s say you have a Google Apps account for work and a personal Google account. You might want to see your husband’s calendar occasionally, but you don’t need to see it all the time. To hide it, uncheck the “Calendars” box next to that account in the “Calendar Accounts” section.
If you have an old account that you no longer use for calendars, you can delete the calendars associated with it. To do this, right-click or control-click on the calendar you want to delete and select “Delete” from the menu that appears. If you’re not sure if there are any events on the calendar, check the “View” and “Calendar Preferences” sections to make sure you’re not deleting anything important.
By following these steps, you can easily eliminate unused calendars in Apple Calendar on your Mac. This will help you stay organized and focused on the calendars that matter most to you.
