How to View Your Contacts on

By Wallace Wang

Some people see their Contacts list as pure gold. They ogle and admire it whenever they’re not busy playing Solitaire. To see your Contacts list on, click the arrow beside the Outlook name at the top of the screen and choose People in the Ribbon. If you’d like to sort the contents of your Contacts list, click the gear icon in the far right of the Ribbon.

That icon reveals a list of ways that you can view your contacts and their source. For your viewing pleasure, you see these options:

Filter All Contacts

  • Outlook

  • Facebook

  • Twitter

Display Order

  • First Last

  • Last Name

Sort By

  • First Name

  • Last, First

You can do much more powerful things with your contacts in the desktop version of Outlook, but seeing your contacts when you’re away from your desk is mighty convenient.
