    iCal Question
    I have several years of data in my iCal file. Everything in there is under the "Unfiled" folder but with my aging eyes, it's difficult to read.

    Is there a way I can convert everything in there from "Unfiled" to "Home" so it will be darker with more contract and therefore, much easier to read? TIA.

    I'd like to try to help, but I don't know where you're seeing these folders called "unfiled" and "Home". Could you give more details?

    It's the color of an entry into iCal... after you enter iCal, in the left column are the Calendars available: Home, Work, Unfiled, Business, Untitled and Untitled 2. I've always used the "Unfiled" color which is a light beige. It's now a little hard to read. I'd like to change all my entries to the "Home" which is a bright blue background and much easier to read. Thanks.

    When you open iCal, right-click on the "Unfiled" calendar on the left side of the screen. Choose "Get Info" and in there you will have a little dropdown to choose what color you want it to appear as. You can have more than one calendar the same color. Or you can change it to whatever one you want and change your other calendar that has the same color to a different color so you don't get them confused.

    Will that change ALL my prior entries to the color I want or only future entries?

    Ah! That's what threw me. Glad you got what you needed!
