How To: Disable Calendar Agenda in Windows 10

Myriad small features have been implemented in the Windows 10 Anniversary Update. For example, you can now see an agenda in the clock’s Calendar overlay. The agenda is a Calendar app feature and lets you see upcoming scheduled events.

But there’s a certain privacy risk to making these available on the desktop and one click away.

This is how the Calendar agenda looks like. In the “No events” section you can see any upcoming events and appointments you added in the Calendar. We don’t have any, which is why it says “No events’.

If you choose to disable Calendar Agenda in Windows 10, the desktop Calendar overlay will have a smaller height and the events area will disappear.  Here’s how you can do it:

To begin with, you will need to open the Settings app. To do this, click on the Start button and click again on the gear icon in the left sidebar.

Then, navigate to Privacy -> Calendar.

In the right section, disable the “Let apps access my calendar” option.


From then on, your Calendar flyout should look something like the image above, meaning the Events section will no longer be displayed.
