How to export Contacts from Windows Live Mail to Thunderbird

OS is Windows 10.
 Thunderbird 45.3.0.
Want to transfer my Contacts from Windows Live Mail (2012) to Thunderbird. I am told I must first export the Contacts to a csv file. And then import them to Thunderbird. To do the first part, I  am told to open Windows Live Mail, click 'File' and 'export', then  chose 'contacts'  and there you go. However in my up-to-date  Live mail when I click on 'File',  I am given the option to export 'email', or 'account'.  There is NO option for exporting 'Contacts', that I can see.
How to proceed.
