Figure 16-13. Setting up your calendar
When you are working with the Date section of the Navigation pane, you can use the Month view of the calendar to select individual dates to view in the main window. Using the Previous Month and Next Month buttons on the calendar, you can navigate to previous and next months. Other techniques to navigate the calendar are as follows:
• While viewing a particular month, you can navigate to previous or next months by clicking the month and year entry to display the 12 months of the year. You can then select any month to view by clicking it.
• While viewing the 12 months of the year, you can change the year by clicking the Previous Year or Next Year button.
• At any time, you can click the "Go to today" link to go back to the current date.
In Windows Live Calendar, the Day, Work Week, Week, and Month views in the main window show appointments and meetings associated with all the calendars you've created or to which you've subscribed. When you are working with the Calendars section of the Navigation pane, you can select the calendar you want to work with to make it the active calendar for when you are scheduling events or setting calendar properties.
Any calendar events you create, modify or delete in the related desktop program are automatically created, modified, or deleted in your contacts in the Windows Live service and vice versa. Synchronization occurs when Windows Live Mail checks for new messages, which occurs every 30 minutes by default. When you are working with the Mail view in Windows Live Mail, you can manually synchronize all email, calendar and contact data with the Windows Live Service by clicking the Sync button or by clicking the Sync Options button and then selecting Everything (Ctrl-F5).
You can change the synchronization options by following these steps:
1. In Windows Live Mail, click the Menus button on the toolbar, and then click Options.
2. On the General tab, ensure the "Check for new messages every" checkbox is selected and then specify the desired interval.
3. Click OK to save your settings.
