You can always modify an existing event.
To modify an event, you would locate it in your calendar and double-click it. We've shown the steps to do this in the picture:
- Double-click the event in your calendar.
- Select the option to open the series.
A birthday occurs annually; therefore, it's entered as a series. To modify it, you need to open the entire series.
- Modify the details in the event dialog box.
If you wanted to change the text that appears in your calendar — for example, if you wanted to show the birth year along with the person's name and the word "Birthday" — you would modify the subject line of the event.
