Imagine that you have updated your Windows to Windows 10 and now want to use the Mail app in Windows 10 instead of third-party tools. Now with that done you also want to import a couple of ICS files in to Windows 10 Calendar.
Calendar Restore app
Since Windows 10 Calendar doesn’t support importing ICS files, we had to use a third-party app called Calendar Restore to import ICS files in to Calendar in Windows 10
For those who don’t know, ICS or .ICS (iCalendar) is a format for calendar files supported by all popular email clients, including Microsoft Outlook and Mozilla Thunderbird. Even Google Calendar supports exporting and importing events in ICS files.
Coming back to Calendar Restore app, it’s a free app available in Windows Store designed to help Windows 10 users easily import all calendar events from ICS files to Calendar app in Windows 10.
Features of Calendar Restore app
- Supports iCalendar (.ICS) files
- Supports ICS files with multiple events
- Allows opening ICS files can be opened directly from email attachments
- Associates .ICS files in File Explorer
- Supports deleting imported events
- Word events appear in local time
And more importantly, the app, according to the developer, doesn’t send any data to any servers.
