I have various contacts' folders and when I click on Contacts, Outlook automatically opens the Contact list from the Outlook Data File.  Is there a way that I can change that behaviour so that when I click on Contacts I instead have the company's contacts located in the Public Folder open
 
Thanks

Hi,

On the Standard toolbar, click Address Book Button image
(You can also open the Address Book by clicking Address Book on the Tools menu.)

Click Tools, and then click Options. - NOTE: If you open the Address Book from an open message, the Tools menu is not available. The Address Book must be opened by either method described in Step 1.

In the Show this address list first box at the bottom, click the name of the address book that you want.
Click OK, and then close the Address Book.

Actually this works for the contact list that appears when you click on To on a new email.  What I am looking for is to change the default contact folder for the Outlook profile in order to have that contact list appear when I click on the Contact icon at the bottom of the navigation bar
Thanks
