    Lost Outlook 2016 Contacts during Windows 10 upgrade

    During my initial Windows 7 Pro to Windows 10 Pro upgrade, I lost my Outlook 2016 contacts. They are backed up on iCloud (on the same Win 10 desktop) from my iPhone, but I don't know how to copy them to the Outlook 2016 contacts file. Can anyone help?

    Try the step listed here, it's lower down saying that they aren't in your deleted folder. It is hidden, if not showing click the light bulb and type in recover and it will show you the hidden item

    Well, the path you let me two has lots of detailed instructions, but I don't think they have been updated for Outlook 2016 (the stand-alone version, not the cloud version). What I do have are all the contacts from my iPhone, backed up on iCloud. I think it contains about 95% of the contacts I had in Outlook 2016 just before those were erased by Windows 10. SO, what I need is some help in downloading them so they can be imported into Outlook 2016.
