Using Windows Contacts

Adding or Removing Contact Pictures
When you create a contact, Windows Vista adds a default image for each contact,
which you can change to any picture or graphic you want. To add or remove a con-
tact picture, follow these steps:
1. Click Start, click All Programs, and then click Windows Contacts.
2. Double-click the contact you want to work with.
3. On the Name and E-mail tab, click the contact picture, and then do one of the
following:
To add a new picture, click Change Picture, locate the picture you want to
use for the contact, click it, and then click Set.
To remove an existing picture, click Remove Picture. The picture will revert
to the default contact image used by Windows.
4. Click OK to save your changes.
Pictures can be in any of the following formats: BMP, GIF, JPEG,
PNG, or ICO. Most pictures are optimized to a file size of 50 KB or
less—even high-resolution pictures—before being saved as part of the
contact information.
Creating Contact Groups
In addition to creating contacts for individuals, you can create contact groups, which
combine multiple individual contacts into a single group. Creating a contact group
enables you to send email to many people at once. If you send an email message to a
contact group, it will be sent to everyone you added to the group. In this way, send-
ing email to a contact group can be a lot easier than adding names one at a time to an
email message, especially if you often send messages to the same group of people.
You can create a contact group by following these steps:
1. Click Start, click All Programs, and then click Windows Contacts.
2. Click New Contact Group on the toolbar. This opens a Properties dialog box
like the one shown in Figure 16-12.
3. In the Group Name text box, type a name for the group.
4. To add existing contacts to the group, click Add to Contact Group, select the
contact or contacts to add, and then click Add.
5. To create a new contact and add it to the group, click Create New Contact, pro-
vide the details for the group, and then click OK.
6. On the Contact Group Details tab, type any additional information for the group.
This could include a meeting or office location, notes, and web site information.
7. Click OK to create the contact group.
