    Do you mean other than google.com/calendar in a web browser? If that's not to your liking, perhaps you can more specific as to what about it you don't like. (I can think of a few things, but those...

    So from what you're saying I gather that her calendar login credentials (username/pswd) are different from her email credentials. Have you tried adding the calendar credentials to her phone?

    There's nowhere in WSUS Offline where you can change the download directory, so I presume you're referring to the "USB medium" option? Note that, as it says, ticking that option will copy the updates...

    Boy, am I glad I quit using Windows Update years ago. Windows Update has become a disaster.

    For me it reached that point a few years ago, before the current GWX debacle. For about 3 years now,...
