How to add contacts in Outlook

Typing email addresses every time you want to send an email is time-consuming and it is prone to errors. It is better to have your contacts list in outlook so that you can quickly send a message in just a few clicks.

Worry no more, here is the solution!

There are two ways for creating a contact list.

  1. You can import contacts from a CSV or excel file into outlook. If you have already had an address book data in excel, you can import all the information to your outlook contacts.
  2. You can also create your contact list manually in outlook.

Option one should be clear and straightforward, let`s look at option two.

1. Log into your account

2. Click people, which is located at the bottom. You can also use a keyboard shortcut, Ctrl+Shift+C to go directly into the contact form.
