If you, like many professionals, use digital calendars to schedule and organize their day-to-day activities, then your life will get a bit easier if you know how to add Google Calendar to Outlook.  

Outlook and Google Calendar have perks and cons. Outlook is preloaded on most Windows systems, so you may open it without a browser.

1. Google Calendar and Outlook will use iCal. Open Google Calendar. Under "My calendars," select the one you want to open in Outlook.

2. Click the Options button beside the calendar of your choice, then click “Settings and sharing.” This action will bring you to that specific calendar’s Settings page. 

3. Scroll down to find “Secret address in iCal format.” Copy this link.

4. Next, go to your Outlook Calendar and click “Add calendar” on the left-side navigation pane. The “Add calendar” window should appear.

5. From the menu shown on the left, click “Subscribe from web.” 

6. Lastly, paste the iCal link in the field provided, add a name, and click Import. Wait for the loading to complete and click Yes if you are asked to add the calendar.
