Can I modify color used when I mark as completed for an event?

Hi simona, unfortunately, there's no mechanism to change how completed events are automatically colored. The current design will make completed events appear faded, which I think makes sense and is consistent with other calendars such as Google Calendar.

You could define tasks instead of events, which do provide the ability to specify how they should appear when completed. This setting is on the Task Calendar Properties window. See the link below for more details:

If you prefer to use events, you could color events based on category instead of calendar. This is an option on the View menu, under "Color Events Using". Next, define a "Completed" category via the Tools menu and color that category how you'd like. When an event is completed, right-click the event and select "Categorize -> Completed" to change the event color.

I hope that helps. Please let me know if you have any other questions.
