Find a contact

In Contacts, do one of the following:

  • On the toolbar, type the name of the contact you want to find in the Search Address Books box.

    You can enter a partial name, such as Judy L, a first or last name, an e-mail alias, a display name, or a company name. To quickly open a contact that you previously searched for, click the arrow in the Search Address Books box and select a name.

  • In the Search Contacts box, type the name or other information saved in Outlook Contacts for the contact.

    You can search on complete or partial information that you have entered for contacts with this method. For example, you can enter a business name or a phone number, or a part of either. To refine this search, you can find out more about Instant Search.

  • In any of the card views, such as Business Cards or Address Cards, click a letter in the alphabetical index displayed next to the cards.

  • In any table view, such as Phone List or By Company, click a column heading to sort the contacts by the criteria that are associated with the column. Some examples of column headings are Full Name, Job Title, Company, and Categories.
