    Synching Outlook 2010 calendars to my new Windows 8 phone

    I have tried for a month to figure out how to synch my Outlook 2010 calendar to my Lumia 920 Windows 8 phone. I have faithfully followed all of the steps suggested by AT&T, Nokia, and on-line help sites. All to no avail. I obviously am learning out a step. Is there any way to do what I want to do? I am running Windows 8 on my laptop. Thank you for your kind help.

    Are you syncing Outlook with a Microsoft account calendar?

    I thought that I was. I copy, then paste the calendar using the Hotmail Connector.

    You need to add the account to your Outlook, using the Hotmail connector. Then you either need to copy the events between the calendars, or you make the data file associated with the hotmail account as the default one. That will make the Hotmail calendar the default one and events will be automatically added to that calendar. Once you do that, the calendar should sync without issues. That's how I sync mine (I have a Lumia 800).

    My calendar is syncing. Now, please, can you tell me how to make the Hotmail Calendar the primary or default calendar. Thank you again.

    Levee If you only have one Mrsft account, it should be the default. If you have two Mrsft accounts however you can choose which one you wish to be the default

    I hope that this is the last bothersome question. I mean to make the calendar the default one in Outlook, the one that shows the calendar items on "Outlook Today."
