1. Re-Establish Calendar Sync
If you are having issues finding events from a third-party calendar account in the Microsoft Calendar app, disabling and re-enabling the sync settings of the Calendar app (and account) has proven to be an effective fix. Here's how to get it done.
Step 1: Launch the Calendar app on your computer.
Step 2: Tap the gear icon at the bottom-left corner of the app to open the Calendar Settings menu.
Step 3: Select Manage Accounts.
Step 4: Select the account whose events are missing or are not syncing properly to your Microsoft Calendar.
Step 5: On the new window, tap 'Change mailbox sync settings' option.
Step 6: Toggle off the Calendar option and toggle it back on.
Step 7: Tap Done.
Step 8: Afterward, click the Save icon to save the sync settings.
Your events from the account should now appear in the Microsoft Calendar app. Also, you should no longer experience the Microsoft Calendar not showing events problem.
2. Confirm Synchronization Capabilities
If you often find that events that you sync from another calendar not showing up in your Windows PC Calendar app, you should confirm that the calendar account supports synchronization with the Microsoft Calendar app.
Currently, the Microsoft Calendar app supports calendar synchronization from the following third-party accounts and services: Yahoo!, Google, Apple iCloud, Microsoft Exchange (or Office 365), and Microsoft's Outlook.
If you are syncing any calendar outside of these accounts or services, your events will most likely not appear in the Microsoft Calendar app.
3. Update Calendar App
Is your Microsoft Calendar app up-to-date? If it isn't, you should check whether you are running the latest version of the app. The missing event issue could be due to a bug in the old/outdated version of the Microsoft Calendar app you are running on Windows 10 PC. Follow the steps below to check if you have the latest version of the Calendar app. Then, you can update the app too.
Step 1: Launch the Microsoft Store from the Taskbar or Start Menu.
Step 2: Type Calendar into the search box and select 'Mail and Calendar' from the drop-down results.
Step 3: If you are running an outdated version of the Microsoft Calendar app, there would be an Update button on the app description page. Tap this button to update your Calendar app.
If you don't see an Update button, you have the latest version of the app installed on your computer.
Let the update install on your device. Then, check if the missing events appear in your calendar. Still can't find your events? Proceed to the next step below.
4. Run Windows Store App Troubleshooter
The Windows 10 operating system has a troubleshooter dedicated to detect and fix any issue with that apps that you have installed from the Microsoft Store. If events you created or synced from another service aren't showing in the Microsoft Calendar app, running the Windows Store Apps troubleshooter could help fix any issue with the app. Here's how to go about it.

5. Reset Calendar App
Resetting the Calendar app could also help fix issues, causing events not to show up within the app.
