I use the Google Calendar. It might not come with the stock build but for me it just works and syncs to my Chromebook and Win 10 PC without any problem.

I can also easily share with partner and add other calendars to my view, EG sport fixtures, bank holidays etc. It also takes birthday information from your contacts and can be added to calendar if you allow it.

I think there are a number of ways to get Google Calendar on Windows but I'm not sure if they will allows the Calendar to actually show on your Desktop (if that is what you are looking for).
I use Thunderbird with the Lightning Extension and the Provider for Google Calendar extension. This gives the calendar synchronized as a tab in Thunderbird.

That's interesting David.
I haven't used Thunderbird for quite a few years now.

Yeah, I guess you always hear the complaints more than the positives.

I'm learning slowly

Thanks for your help guys.
