If you use a Windows, Mac, Linux, or Chromebook computer, access the Google Calendar site to cancel your event.
To do so, first, open your preferred web browser and launch the Google Calendar site. There, sign in to your account if you have not already.
On the calendar that appears, click the event you want to cancel.
On the event window, at the top, click “Delete Event” (a trash can icon).Advertisement
