Search your calendar in Outlook.com

We use calendars to keep track of upcoming events, appointments, and meetings. If you remember adding an item to your calendar, but can't remember what you added and for what date, don't worry. You can search calendars in Outlook.com to find that item.

Search for an item in your calendar

When you’re viewing a calendar or calendars, you can search for an item by using a keyword or phrase.

  1. Sign in to Outlook.com.

  2. At the bottom of the page, select Calendar to go to Calendar.

  3. In the Search box, type a word or phrase. For example, you could enter the word "holiday" or a phrase such as "department meeting."

  4. Press Enter or select the magnifying glass to search.

Outlook.com searches all calendars you've currently selected. You can adjust the time range or the calendars you wish to search using the filters in the search box.

Your search results will appear as a list. Choose any event in the list to view it in the reading pane.

Note: To clear the search box and return to the standard calendar view, choose the back arrow next to the search box or click anything in the left navigation menu.
