How do I choose which Contacts folders display under "My Contacts" on the Navigation Pane?

I have about 30 different Contacts lists/folders, most of which I don't use on a daily basis and they clutter the screen by all being listed under "My Contacts".  Is there a way for me to choose which I want to display, and which I want hidden?

Found the solution...created a "New Group", then moved my desired contact lists into it and minimized all the other groups.

Well, it depends on your version of Outlook.  If you are using 2007 then click Contacts to view all of your contacts.  Then, right click on say, your most popular, the ones you want to see all the time and assign them to a colored category: Right click the contact > Categorize > assign a color.

Then, on your menu bar go to View > Current View > By category.  Here you will have everyone listed by the category you put them in.  simply minimize the ones you do not want to see.

I think earlier versions of Outlook are the same, with minor different steps but the idea is the same.

Yes, it's 2007.  But I'm not looking to arrange them in the viewing pane...I'm referring to the navigation pane on the left hand side.
