Importing an ICS Attachment to the non-Default Outlook Calendar

Posted by Russell Wright on February 13, 2019

Here’s a quick post on how to handle an ICS attachment (iCalendar or vCalendar file) when you have multiple O365 (or Exchange) accounts in the Outlook desktop application.

I have two Outlook accounts:  Business and Personal.  I am using Outlook (2016 I think, version 1808) to manage both calendars.  When an ICS file comes in on my personal (non-default) account as an attachment I’d like to add the contents to my personal calendar.  If I double-click and open it and then save, it will save to the default (business) calendar.  There’s a simple way to handle this problem.

Make sure you have your non-default calendar displayed in the calendar view.  Simply click and drag and drop the attachment to the non-default calendar and BOOM!  You’re all done.  Simple drag-and-drop works fine.

Turn off Clutter in OWA Office 365

Posted by Russell Wright on June 26, 2017

Turn off clutter in Outlook Web Access in Office 365.  Thanks to Micael AC for the real solution!

Your clutter settings are probably missing, so you must first change the Display settings.

OneNote needs a password to sync this notebook. Click here to enter your password. Get Rid of KB3055034 and KB3054886!

Posted by Russell Wright on November 5, 2015

This has been driving me nuts.  I’ve searched for hours.  For me, I’ve finally tracked it down to two updates in October.  KB3055034 and KB3054886.  After removing both my OneNote 2010 seems to be syncing again.  I first wrote about this for KB3055034 in this post.  But I was still having problems.  Then I found this post.  I’m not using SmartVault Drive, but since they appear to be related I removed them both.  Success!  This pic is showing the uninstallation of KB3054886.  I uninstalled it from everything.  Same for KB3055034…you’ll see it installed multiple times.  After the uninstallation, reboot.

KB3054886 Uninstall

Now I can sync from OneDrive again!

Some other background.  I have a personal OneDrive (Live) account.  I also have two OneDrive for business accounts.  I expect them all to work, but I’m finding OneDrive for business has lots of sync issues.

Some other posts I’ve looked at.  There were others.
