I have a flash drive that contains a bunch of standard outlook 2010 contacts (MSG extension) which I would like to have in my new desktop install in the contacts area.  How can I import them or "open" them into my new desktop install.

Hi just open Outlook and switch to Contacts, then open your flash drive folder in Windows explorer in a windows next to Outlook. Then select the contacts MSG files you want to install, and drag and drop to the Contacts area in Outlook. Don't drag the folder over, Outlook cannot import that.
