    How to Export and Import Contacts for People app in Windows 10


    The People app included in Windows 10 puts all the ways you connect with all your friends, family, colleagues, and acquaintances in one place, so its faster than ever to keep in touch.

    You can use the People app to see all your contacts in one place, listed alphabetically. Contacts in the People app are also available to your Outlook.com account.

    The Mail app uses the People app for Windows 10 to store contact information.

    While you cannot directly export your contacts from the People app, you can export your contacts from Outlook.com to a CSV file and then import them back and/or import them into other email apps such as Gmail or Yahoo, or other versions of Outlook.

    You can import contacts from various services, including Outlook, Exchange, Gmail, and iCloud.

    I have 2 accounts in Windows mail each with their own gmail account and contacts. How do I import the contacts for one person and then the contacts for the other person? Even combining the cvs files would be ok.
