    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.

    Clear "Pin suggested" list in People Bar


    So after playing around a bit more, the only solution seems to be to delete all contacts from either Skype, Mail or People app directly, so they won't show up on the "Pin suggested" list. That's rather harsh.

    add mail contacts to People

    Hi Karen,

    Regarding your concern, since you already downloaded a .csv file of your Yahoo contacts to your computer, we can import them the other way around since People App doesn't have a built-in option to import contacts directly. To import contacts to the People
    App using a .csv file, please do the following steps:

    • On your browser, sign in your account at
      https://people.live.com
    • Select Manage, then choose Import contacts.
    • Choose Yahoo Mail.
    • Click Browse and locate the .csv file of your Yahoo contacts to start importing them.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    Thank you.
