    Contacts Delete Options


    In Windows 10 mail, my old dead contacts appear in the drop down option box when I click on the first letter, of the email I want to send.
    When I open People App they don't show there.
    When I open Outlook on the web my Contacts folder on the bottom left have no Contacts in it, instead it has recent email from the Inbox Folder.
    When I click on the People Box in the top left of Outlook, it opens all my contacts but with NO option to delete. When I click on a Contact then Manage, it simply tells me I have no duplicates. No delete option there.
    So where are these contacts listed so I can delete them?

    :)

    Windows 10 Calendar | Remove "Microsoft Account" default calendar

    Is there more information about this? I'm having the same issue, and it's driving me nuts(OCD alert)!

    Windows 10 Pro x64 Version 1607 (OS Build 14393.693)

    Mail and Calendar 17.7812.42257.0

    Microsoft People 10.1.3410.0

    Store 11610.1001.25.0

    Login to Windows using a 'Local Account', not a 'Microsoft Account'.

    Two accounts from an unrelated provider. One for e-mail using IMAP+SMPT, another for calendar/contacts using CalDav+CardDav (iCloud). I censored the second account name due to bad languageContacts Delete Options :).

    And yet, when opening the Calendar. There is an entry for 'Microsoft Account Calendar', wich is unable to be managed.

    Things I've tried to fix this:

    - Removed and added accounts (Using both 'Calendar-->Manage Accounts' and 'Settings-->Accounts')

    - Removed and installed Mail/Calendar/People (Using PowerShell and Store)

    - Run Microsoft Troubleshooter for Windows Store

    - Run SFC /scannow

    - Run DISM /RestoreHealth

    - Switched to Microsoft Account, and back to local

    - A combination and multiplication of all the above!

    So far no fix is noticeable and the problem persist. Where does that 'Microsoft Account' entry comes from? And more important, how to remove it?!

    I would really appriciate if Microsoft gave some attention to this issue, and help us solve this.

    With kind regards,
