    I personally think that putting all your contacts in people.live.com would be faster as they'd appear on the People App on W10.
    Hi Windows10Freak- thanks, can you import a csv file (e.g.) that way?
    If do, could you detail step by step how to do that?

    I'm then wondering- if you have your contacts in the People App, what use are they there? (Ok I'm thinking as a traditional desktop user with no intention of using the Mail App e.g.)

    I.ve found a way..works with vista/xp/7 and maybe others


    , re: moving my email contacts from my vista laptop contacts programme to my windows 10 laptop “people” app.
    ...tried Microsoft – they said you can’t do it....But I’ve done it.
    This will also work for xp and 7 and maybe others.
    Make sure you have a hotmail/outlook/live email account on your windows 10 laptop.
    Export your contacts from your old vista/xp/7 contacts programme as a .csv folder onto a memory stick.
    Log into your hotmail/live /outlook account on line on your new windows 10 computer.
    Settings (the cog icon) > options>people > import contacts
    Browse to your f drive (memory stick)
    Import contacts then log out.

    When you open people app on your win 10 computer all your contacts will be there.
    Yipeeee


    Thank you all for your input.

    I'm having the same problem trying to import contacts from Vista Mail to Windows 10 Live Mail. I tried your technique to Import contacts but having trouble. I'm at your step "Settings (the cog icon)>options..." I can't find the icon or anything that seems to relate to it. Can you help?

    Right. Go to Sign in to your Microsoft account Log in to your account and you should see your emails. Right at the top of that page there is a long black strip where it says "outlook mail preview". On the far right of that strip there is your photo (if supplied) or an outline. To the left of that a ? symbol and to the left of that is the cog (toothed wheel) settings symbol.
    (sorry, cant send a screenshot. you'd be able to see all my email headers)

    Contacts Shortcut


    A simple way to maintain your Contacts folder including export and import is to create short cut for the contacts program.
    In Windows 10 go to "C:\Program Files\Windows Mail\wab.exe" RT click it and create a Contacts exe shortcut on your desktop.
