Windows 10: Outlook People Not in Contacts Folder Solved

    Outlook People Not in Contacts Folder


    I exported Windows Live Contacts from Windows 7 computer and imported them into Outlook 2016 on Windows 10.
    The contacts appear in Outlook People and in Address Book.

    The Contacts folder in C: >Users>Username>Contacts is empty.
    I am the only user.

    Should the contacts also be in there?
    How can I get them there?
    Thanks, cb

    Hi abredt

    No the contacts should not be in the Username Contact folder. This folder is used by Windows Fax and Windows Live(shelved).

    Thanks.

    Can you tell me where the Contacts are stored?

    I also want to back up the Contacts.

    In Outlook, People I clicked to Export to a File. It lists Contacts and 2 folders under it with long numerical filenames. What are these folders?

    Thanks, cb

    I export them directly from the web. I sign in my outlook.com account (or hotmail, msn, live all re-branded ) and export from there.

    If you one of these accounts log in, click on the nines squares, upper left, then click on People. When the window opens click on "manage", last item in list.

    To prove it is working and you are getting everything I import in gmail. This works well for me a gmail is my emergency account so it helps me keep it fresh.

    Exporting contacts from outlook.com doesn't work for me in Chrome but does work in Edge / IE11.
