    How do i delete recent contacts from Microsoft People


    In the people app, I have a list of recent contacts.

    I try to right-click and delete the contact individually but the delete button is disabled.

    How to remove them?

    The "recent contacts" are the list of people you recently emailed to. Some of those people might not be on your contact list at all.
    If you UN-check the box "Recent contacts (Microsoft People)", you will find that those contacts are no longer on the People list.

    Is there any way to remove them completely?

    I can uncheck the list but when i search for something in the start menu, the contacts will still appear.

    After you unchecked the box, did you click DONE ?

    Yes i did but it still appears on the start search whenever i search for something.

    I try to edit the recent contact and it says 'You can't change recent contacts information on your device, but you can add details that will show up on their contact card'.

    So there is no way to remove it?

    In my case, those people did not reappear when I reopened People app.
    Sorry, I have no answer for you.
    Please wait for someone else to come along.
    Good luck.
