Add button to contact form

I am very familiar with creating / editing forms in Access, but at first look Outlook forms are quite different. I want to add a button beside each of the 4 phone number fields. I'm looking for a quick way to have the computer dial a contacts phone number. I am making phone calls all day while using the PC at the same time and am looking to save a few steps.

Thanks for any ideas.

You are not able to edit the first tab in the contacts form.

What you would need to do is make a COPY of the default form, make your changes and then replace the default form as shown here:
