Hi

Can I get back the 2010 version of Outlook "find a contact"?

In 2010 I set up quick access toolbar with find a contact.  You started typing in a contact and previous one's appeared, you click one you wanted and the full contact page came up.  Easy and quick.

In 2013 you have to type in some characters, press enter and you get a short list, select the one you want, up comes a summary page.  You then have to click contact to get full contact page.  5 stages to get to same point.

Can anyone help me get back old version please?

Thanks Terry

Go to View -> Taskbar -> Check Persons.

You'll see a searchbar appear.

Start typing name and hover over name and click the little Arrow on the right corner to expand the contactinfo.

p.s. Also hovering over the Contacts icon on the left bottom shows the search.

Taskbar is To-Do-bar in my previous post.
my apologies.  (translated from dutch to english).

In oulook you have above in the ribbon: File | Start | Send/Recieve | Folder | View

Click View

There is an Icon in the Ribbon named "To-Do ..." (located 3/4 of screen)

Click it and select Persons.

Hi Wilroof

Yes that looks interesting.  But once you have your list of people and you double click one.  You still have to click Outlook (contacts) to get full contact page.

Also it takes up part of my screen.

I would still like the old way back.  I would start typing "micr" and Microsoft would appear and single click.  bingo, full contact page.  and only a small box in task bar to input into.

thanks Terry

what I think I am asking is that when I search for a contact can it show the Outlook Properties and not the contact card first?  is this in an option anywhere?  or can I switch off contact card?
