First step, log them all into your Apple ID account.

I've gone to each--iMac, phone, pad--and signed in.
Still not synched. I have 5 different calendars listed--don't know how I got some of them--David's, Home, etc. Only use Google Calendar. Can I eliminate the rest of them?

there will always be one default one though.

Took you a long time to tell us that you only use Google Calendar though.

Perhaps that bit of information would have been handy to begin with.

So, instead of signing them all into your Apple ID account, I guess you would sign them all into your Google account as well.

In reply to: Sure,

Tried all suggestions, but still can't get them items all to synch. Dates OK from iMac to Phone. But not iPhone to Mac.
Phone to Pad OK; Pad NOT to Phone.
And, using iTunes I can't backup my Pad to iCloud--backup is on in iCloud. Msg says no backup since Jan.Tried many times to backup, but latest backup date still Jan.
Sorry, this has been such a mess.
Do appreciate your advice.

Wait a second."using iTunes I can't backup my Pad to iCloud"

I thought the iPad did this on its own without iTunes. That is, the iPad connects with WiFi and does the iCloud backup without iTunes.

I could be wrong but that's what I read.

I don't know about iPad backup. It's the one of the 3 "i" that doesn't connect with the Phone and Mac.
Really getting frustrated. Will try again later. But will work on other things and calm done.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
