    Hi all:

    I give up, how do I make a short-cut from Outlook2002's 'CONTACTS' to my desktop. I used to be able to do this with 2000's contacts but not with 2002.

    I can't use windows xps address book either cause when I enter an new address is will not transfer it to my favorite Contact manager, which is within Outlook 2002.

    Thanks

    Doug

    Open outlook in a window so that you can see your desktop (not fullsize)

    Rightclick and drag the folder contacts to your desktop and choose 'Copy here'

    I'm sorry if i wasn't totally clear

    Within outlook make sure you have the Folder list View (View/Folder List)

    Now right-Click-drag the contacts folder (still from the folder list view) and drag this to your desktop

    See attached picture...

    Hope this clarify's it

    :)
