    contacts into the people app


    I am setting up Windows 10 for a friend who uses an email provider where the contacts list does not appear to be compatible with the People App.

    I have saved the contacts list that was in windows live mail, stored on the windows 7 machine, as a csv file and vcf files.


    I can get the contacts into my microsoft account and it will sync with the People App, but if I remove the account, the contacts are removed.


    How can I get the contacts into the People App, so that the mail app will work, without having an account linked to the People App.

    :)

    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,

    People app not syncing google contacts


    I have the release Windows 10. I have successfully linked my google account, and mail and calendar seem to work fine. But not the people (contacts) app. The account is listed in People, I can tell it to sync, get no error message, but no contacts arrive. Am I missing something?
