Windows apps are a great way to add functionality to your computer, but sometimes they need something in order to work – access to certain functions. Sometimes, though, apps ask for permissions they don’t need, and you may find yourself wanting to take them back – thankfully, you can do so fairly easily.
Tip: Some programs’ functionality is limited without access to certain apps.
Press the Windows key and type Privacy settings, then press Enter. You’ll be taken to a page where you can add and remove permissions for certain Windows functions.
Scroll on the left until you reach the Calendar option. Once you’re there, you’ll have several different choices, You can either restrict the access to your Calendar for ALL apps, or you can set individual permissions for each of the apps you have installed.
Change the sliders as you want to and close the window when you are done with it.
Tip: You may find that an app asks permission to use your Calendar again once you launch it. If you give it permission again, you can revoke it the same way as before – or you can deny the request to have access and use the app anyway.
