Locate an address with Contact maps

Microsoft Outlook can do more than just store your contact information. Outlook Contacts has a map feature that can help locate a contact's address for you.

If you have entered a complete address for a person or business in your contact list, it takes only a few clicks to bring up a map for that location. And if you want written directions, that is only another click away.

View a map for an address in Contacts

  1. In an open Contact, in the Addresses section, click the arrow, and then click the type of address that you want to find on a map — Business, Home, or Other.

    Tip    The Addresses section is in the lower-left portion of the contact form. The arrow is next to a button that displays one of the address types.

  2. On the Contact tab, in the Communicate group, click Map.

    Note: This feature might not work on some addresses outside of the United States.

Along with viewing a map that shows the location of the contact's address, you have the options to zoom in or out, print the map, and get written directions.
