How do I get back the full contact editing window?

By default, even when double clicking on a contact in the Contacts folder, you’ll open the Contact Card of that specific contact. While it does allow you to modify the primary properties of a contact, is doesn’t hold all the fields of the full contact window.

To open the full contact window, there are a couple of options;

  • Select the contact in the Contacts folder and in the Reading Pane, click on any of the links under the Profile section to open that specific contact item. To quickly switch to your Contacts folder, use CTRL+3 or press on the People link at the bottom.
  • Open the Contact Card first (for instance, by right clicking on the contact picture or email address of a received message in the Reading Pane and choosing “Open Contact Card) and then click on any of the links under the Profile section to open that specific contact item.
  • Switch the view of your Contacts folder from People to any of the other available views such as Business Cards, Phone or List.

There is also a Registry value to always open the traditional Contact Form when double clicking on a contact rather than the Contact Card.
