Manually Create a Contact in Windows Contacts

How-to manually create a contact in Windows Contacts for Windows Vista.

Create a Contact

  1. Click the Start button.
  2. Click All Programs.
  3. Select Windows Contacts.
  4. Click New Contact at the top of the Contacts window.

Fill out the new contact’s name. Type their e-mail address and then click the Add button to add it. If they have more than one e-mail address you can set which one is preferred by selecting it and then clicking Set Preferred.

You can also change the contact’s picture to an actual picture of that person by clicking the down arrow just under the picture and then clicking Change picture.

Notice the tabs at the top of the contact’s window. There are areas to separate home from work contact information, family details, and a place to keep notes about that contact.

Note: Contacts you create here are used in Windows Mail and other programs that take advantage of this feature in Windows Vista.
