One thought on “How to sync Outlook.Com mails/Contacts/Calendar on Surface

  1. For years I managed calendar and contacts on a PC. Now I have a ‘surface” with no calendar or contacts. There must be a simple way to get PC Outlook contacts and calendar syncronised on the ‘surface’, but I have been unable to find the method?

    Do I sent the PC Outlook calendar and contacts to SkyDrive or cloud Outlook somehow… then access it from the surface. Can it be done on Google gmail or how?

    I hope there is a simple free way. HELP.
