Opening Contacts

To create or manage contacts, open your Contacts folder using whichever of the following methods is most convenient for you:

  • Press image, type contacts, and click Windows Contacts in the Apps results.
  • If you’re already in a folder, click your username in the breadcrumb trail, and then click (or double-click) the Contacts folder icon.

If you’ve never used your Contacts folder before, it will likely be empty. Figure 21.1 shows a sample Contacts folder with a few contacts already in place.

Changing how you view contacts

Because Contacts is a folder, you can control how things look using the standard techniques described in Chapter 28, “Managing Files and Folders.” For example:

  • To show or hide the Preview pane, click Organize and choose Layout image Preview Pane.
  • To show or hide the Navigation pane, click Organize and choose Layout image Navigation Pane.
  • To show or hide the menu bar, press the Alt key or click Organize and choose Layout image Menu Bar.
