How to Add Google Calendar to Windows 11 or 10 Taskbar?

Google Calendar is a time-management and scheduling calendar service designed by Google. It became available in a beta release on April 13, 2006, and in general release in July 2009.

The Google Calendar allows users to create and edit events and set a reminder for the events. You can add event locations, and other users can also be invited to events. Over time, Google has added several functionalities, including “Events from Gmail,” where event information from a user’s Gmail messages is automatically added to Google Calendar; “Reminders,” where users add to-do activities that can be automatically updated with new information; “Smart Suggestions,” where the app recommends titles, contacts, and locations when creating events; and “Goals,” where users enter information on a specified personal goal, and the app automatically schedules the activity at optimal times.

You can utilize Google Calendar for various purposes, including creating and editing events such as birthdays, anniversaries, etc., scheduling and managing meetings, adding reminders for a particular date, etc.
