how do you delete an item from the calendar

how do you delete an item from the calendar? when i open up a meeting, event etc that i have scheduled on my calendar and dont need it any longer there is no delete button when that calendar item is open?

Hello Ben,
you cannot delete the event when you open it in a separate window meant for editing.
Either right-click>delete it when in normal view or press the delete button when the focus is on the event (by clicking it once with left mouse button).
