How can I change the default outlook contact folder which is used and I automatically add new contacts? I want to switch it temporarly to a public folder instead of the one of my inbox. Much thanks.

You can change it under the "Tools"  menu in the "Address Book" options.
Click CTRL+Shift+B and enter the "Tools"-"Options" settings. Change it in the "Keep personal addresses in" drop-down list.

Strange. It's work very well for me. What the name of your new contacts folder?
Try the next steps:
create a new contacs folder anywhere and call him New Contacts. Right click on the folder->Properties->Outlook Address Book-> Check the "Show this folder as..." checkbox.
After that click CTRL+Shift+B and enter the "Tools"-"Options" settings. Change the value in the "Keep personal addresses in" drop-down list to "New Contacts". Save changes. Reopen the Outlook.
Try to create a new contact.

OK - I see the problem. I am NOT using the drop down New Contacts. From an existing email I choose add to contacts and I want that address to go in the newly created contacts folder.

Ok,
 It's not possible to change. Only if you change the Default Mail Store place (create a new PST and set it to be default.
