I have been using Thunderbird and Lightning on Windows and Linux computers for several years. I just installed Thunderbird 102.6.1 on a new Windows 10 computer. I've spent at least an hour trying to find and install Lightning. I cannot find it. Web searches say to look in add-ons, Tools, the hamburger menu and Events and Task ... not of those exist in my Thunderbird.

How do I find Lightning?

Most folk would use the file menu (others the appmenu) and select new and then calendar. Yet others would have set up their linked calendars with sites like google as a part of configuring their mail accounts.

You don't. As of TB78 the Lightning calendar add-on has been integrated into Thunderbird.

OK, so how do I "activate" It? I want to set up my calendar.

That did the trick! I guess it's been so long since I set up a new Calendar that I forgot about going to File > New > Calendar. That's all I needed, thanks!
