Segment “Ask a GCT”:  googleeducast@edreach.us


“I love using Google Calendar, but when it recently moved to the ‘new look’ they changed the colours/colors available for my various calendar layers. I find I don’t like the colours/colors now on offer... they seem more washed out than I’d like.  Is there a way to choose my own colours/colors for the calendar?”

As a matter of fact... yes.
