I tried to migrate my profile from a Windows 7 computer to a Windows 10 computer.
However, I cannot recall how I configured the calendar feature to work the same way.

On Windows 7, when I click on the "calendar tab" button, I get a calendar that shows all my "events"/tasks that I have programmed into Google Calendar that is synchronized with my phone. I can right-click on the calendar and get a new event, and there are buttons that will scroll to the next and previous month so I can look back, especially like now at the end of a month when i want to see the week ahead.

On Windows 10, sometimes the events do not appear on the calendar, only on the list at the top. What appear to be scroll buttons do nothing. Using the mouse wheel will change the month, but that is annoying as sometimes it moves two months accidentally if I move the wheel just a tiny amount more, I have to just barely touch the wheel in the right place to move one month.
Right clicking has "new event" and "new task" dimmed.

How do I configure the Win10 calendar to be like the win7 setup?

I have no idea, it says everyone can download. I've updated the OP to include links to the two screenshots as well.

I have no idea either.

Both links say "Adult Content You must be signed in to see this content.", with a "Sign In" link.

To get the calendars from the W7 computer to the W10 computer, I would export the calendars from the Calendar tab in W7, then create the new calendar and import the data into the new calendar on the W10 computer.

The Export and Import commands are under Events and Tasks when in the Calendar tab.

Windows Notebook - AMD A8 7410 2.2GHz | 6.0GB RAM | AMD Radeon R5

It isn't so much the data which seems to get imported from Google just fine, it is the interface and layout. I want the Windows 10 version to work just like the Windows 7 version.

As for the photos, flickr seems to have altered my defaults and set them to "moderate" instead of "safe". I didn't even look at that since it defaulted to "safe" for the last 15 years and I have never needed to change it before. I'm investigating the album, but having less success figuring out what is wrong with that.

***UPDATE***
I wound up removing "Provider for Google Calendar" and "Lightning", restarting Thunderbird, then re-installing them, restarting again, then reconfiguring them. That seemed to fix the problem.
