How to remove Agenda from the clock flyout on Windows 10

In the Anniversary Update for Windows 10, Microsoft introduced a slew of new features and improvements to refine and make the user experience a little more complete and secure. For example, in this feature update, the taskbar includes a number of tweaks, and in particular the ability to see your daily event from the clock flyout.

The new feature is called Agenda, and it's a section that you can easily use on Windows 10 to check your daily schedules that you have configured in the Calendar app. Within the Agenda section, you can click an event to view all the details, or click the "+" button to create a new event in the Calendar app.

However, if you use a different calendar application that doesn't take advantage of this feature, or you simply don't use a calendar, Windows 10 provides a way to remove it from the clock flyout.

In this Windows 10 guide, we'll walk you through the steps to completely remove the Agenda section from the clock flyout.

How to remove the Agenda from the clock flyout

  1. Open Settings.
  2. Click on Privacy.
  3. Click on Calendar.
  4. Under "Choose apps that can access the calendar," turn off the toggle switch for the Windows option to complete the task.

Once you completed the steps, when you open the clock flyout, you'll no longer see the Agenda section.

Alternatively, you can turn off the Let apps access my calendar to get the same results, but you'll also be preventing other apps from accessing your calendar.

If you don't want to see the new Agenda section, but you don't want to disable it either, you can open the clock flyout and click the Hide agenda option in the bottom-right corner.

  • Why would one want to remove this?
  • I ask that same thing a lot of times with these articles. The only guess I can hazard is maybe you are mirroring your screen for a presentation and don't want private pop ups during the session.
  • Make sense... Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Not really, that's what quiet hours are for.
  • Oh! Okay (^_^) Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Actually there's a setting to never show notifications while mirroring your screen.
  • Is that in the anniversary build? I was thinking that was newer to the insider builds. Either way, if I was presenting, I would probably just have a local account for that. That way I don't have to worry about any of my files or photos showing up at any time. Or even just using the start menu, I'd rather a group like that not even see what apps I use. Not that there's anything to hide, but privacy is always good.
  • It's been there since the launch of Windows 10. In fact I feel like it was there in W8, but as an insider my timeline is a little blurry.
  • Also right now there is a bug with Insider releases where the Agenda will show 100+ of the exact same thing.
  • Thought there's a separate setting in notifications' settings to not show notifications in full screen mode.
  • Should use extend screen then, not mirror. There is more that calendar entries that can pop up when showing the primary screen to the audience. 
  • Yeah, you are right. At the same time a mirrored screen is easier for most people to handle. You should see the cockpit trouble I witness at work with extended screens and power point.
  • Maybe it gets annoying on smaller screens? I'm just guessing.
  • Your answer is in the article. I don't use an agenda, as don't others. The end. We're all different. Choices. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Do you really need to expand the time to read it or changes just bother you.
  • My thoughts exactly its a great feature even though I always forget its there lol. It would be kind of cool if they made it so you could detach it or just keep it up on screen all the time without having to click on it.
  • never mind
  • I don't really see why you'd need to disable it completely. I don't use it, but I don't need to tear it out. It's likely that doing it as instructed will disable it in other areas too (e.g. Cortana). I just click the "Hide Agenda" button and be done with it. 
  • Couldn't you just hit the "Hide Agenda" button that's even visible in that screenshot?
  •  True
  • this simply press hide agenda
  • I didn't even know the clock flyout had agenda! That is so cool and I will use it now.
  • lul :D
  • Yes. Maybe before they write articles on how to remove features they should write articles on how useful the features are. Just sayin..
  • Why would this be needed? There's an option to hide or show the agenda in the clock flyout anyway
  • …only visible if your screen is 900+px high.
     
  • Some people are afraid of change, reading the clock does require someone to click on it. If one doesn't click on the time, he won't even see the calendar. Unless if one thinks that clicking on the clock will magnify to the size of the screen, maybe should blame MS for poor user manual.
  • But it really does show a bigger clock. And also shows the calendar — you know, that table of days week by week.
     
  • Super article. Sometimes some users . Using wide , huge screens . Need specific things showing on screen .
    Great article. Thanks developers.thanks MS
  • Why would the first suggestion be to disable Calendar access for Windows (which will disable lots of other potential functionality as well) when you could have suggested the "Hide agenda" option first?
  • Because Windows Central writers were blinded at the time by Rubinos' need for this site which he uses to make up for his self medicating ego boosts he gets from this website. That or, the writer of this article is clueless.
  • Mauro is far from clueless, and I resemble the self medicating remark.
  • Never even knew about this feature until now. Pretty darn cool if you ask me.
