    What has to be done for changing the color of calendar events in Windows 8?

    I have synced multiple accounts with Calendar app in my laptop running on Windows 8 and created several events through it. I am planning to set up different colors for these accounts to recognize the calendar events. What are the procedures for that?

    Get into the ‘Start Screen’ and click the ‘Calendar’ app tile. You can also launch the apps from ‘All apps’ page. If you find it difficult to locate the app from too many applications, then you can use the search function. Press the Windows + C key and click the ‘Search’ option from the Charms bar for bringing up the search field. Once you select the app, access its settings by pressing the Windows key + I. Click the ‘Options’ option from the settings list and look for the account for which you want to change the color. You can then find a box with colored text with an arrow mark. Click on that mark and choose a color from the available list. Before selecting the color, you need to make sure that it is not used by any other account. Quit the settings panel afterwards so that the modified settings will be saved automatically.

    Swipe in from the right edge of the screen, and then tap Settings.
    If you're using a mouse, point to the upper-right corner of the screen, move the mouse pointer down, and then click Settings.


    Tap or click Options.


    Tap or click the calendar you want to change, and do the following:


    Under the calendar name, change the setting from Show to Hide.


    Under the setting, use the list to change the calendar color.
