How to sync ALL shared Google Calendars to Windows 10 Calendar app, show past entries beyond 30 days and search calendar button??

Hi

I added my Google account to the Windows 10 Mail and Calendar app, but I can only view some of my Google Calendars (my personal and a few others) BUT none of the calendars under the "other calendars" category on Google Calendars are populating/syncing and showing up on my Windows 10 Mail and Calendar app...

Even though ALL of my Google shared and main calendars show up when I have synced it with my Android phones etc for years now.

I was just trying to see what I may have missed since I've researched and read countless pages of blogs about syncing Google Calendars with Windows 10 Mail and Calendar and haven't run into many people with this same issue.

Also, on my Android Samsung Galaxy S4, I'm able to view on my phone calendar app, ALL entries dating back to 2010 when I first used Google Calendar, but on Windows 10 Mail and Calendar...it only shows entries from this current month of September (when I added my Google account to Windows 10 Mail and Calendar) and the future...

Only recurring weekly/monthly etc entries show up for the previous months on Windows 10 Mail and Calendar...??

Is anyone else having this issue or is there a setting I'm overlooking so that I can have access to all the entries from Google Calendar onto my Windows 10 Mail and Calendar?

And lastly--besides using Cortana, is there a search button I am missing on the Windows 10 Mail and Calendar app, since I can't understand how a calendar app would not allow you to search thru it easily?

Thanks!!!
C

I had a similar problem and spent about two days trying to work it out...

I was trying to get a shared Google calendar (under "Other Calendars") to appear in my Windows 10 Calendar client and to no avail.

This solved it instantly:

Go to https://calendar.google.com/calendar/syncselect

Select the calendars to sync.

Voilà!

This workaround is filed under Google Apple Cal app help area - although it does say at the bottom of the sync page "* or any other CalDAV device".
