  1. Adding the ability to call contacts from "People" app


    Hello

    There is a new Windows feature that let's you to call via "Your Phone" app. It is cool. But there's something missing. In "People" app which contacts are, there is an option to call them via Skype but there is no option to call via Phone.

    Please add a feature to call Windows contacts directly from People app.

    Thanks

    :)

    Deleting contacts from Windows 10


    When you say Windows Mail Live are you referring to Mail app or Windows Live Mail?

    I suggest you to try the steps provided below and check if it helps.


    • Open Windows Live Mail.
    • Press Ctrl + 3 using your keyboard. Right-click on the contact to delete it if it is a single contact.
    • Highlight all contacts by pressing Ctrl + A.
    • Click Delete located on the Ribbon bar.
    • Click OK when you see the message These contacts will also be deleted from Hotmail, Messenger, and other Windows Live services.

    After following the steps above, all your contacts that you have manually added to your account will be deleted however, contacts coming from third-party sites such as Facebook will not be deleted unless you remove Facebook from your account.

    For Mail app:

    Open People app then delete the contact.

    Hope this helps in resolving the issue. If the issue persists, do get back to us. We will be happy to assist you.

    Unlink combined contacts - People app

    Hi Ninaco,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community forums.

    The People app is your address book. Combine contacts is a feature to link duplicates to a single contact to avoid confusion. To overcome the issue you’re facing, I suggest you to try the steps listed below:

    Method 1

    Unlink Contacts:

    • Open People app, click on the contact that is linked, and select
      See More on the right pane.
    • Click on Separate for the contact you want to unlink.

    Method 2

    Reset People app:

    If you’ve multiple contacts that are linked, resetting People app would unlink contacts and put everything in place.

    • Exit People app, if open.
    • Open Settings and click on Apps.
    • Locate People app on the right pane and choose
      Advanced Options.
    • Click on Reset.

    Once reset is complete, open People app to see if the contacts are still linked.

    For more information regarding People app, refer People app help

    Let us know how it goes.

    Regards,

    Deleted Skype Contacts Still in the People App

    Hi Mateja,

    From your issue description, I understand that you want to remove Skype contacts from People app. Not to worry, I am here to help you with this issue.

    As an initial troubleshooting step, I suggest you to hide Skype contacts by applying filter and check if this helps.

    Follow these steps:

    • Open People app and click on Settings.
    • Now click on Filter contact list.
    • Uncheck Skype from list and click on Done.
    You may also delete contacts manually.

    Right click on contact name one by one and click on Delete.

    Kindly let us know if you need any further assistance with Windows. We are glad to assist you.

    Thank you.
