    how to export windows 10 people contacts


    This is screwed up, people apple doesn't allow you to simply export contact info into a vcard or csv file to upload into another application.


    After playing around for hours, I found the solution:


    1. open people and select a contact

    2. in the contact details click share

    3. some applications you can share with will appear. below you'll find 'applications'

    4. click on applications and select app 'contact 7'

    5. download contact 7 from MS store (costs around a buck)

    6. install and run contact 7

    7. say yes to message 'access my contacts'

    8. once all contacts are in contact 7, choose share option and select all

    9. within share go for option people I share with

    10. choose an email address you can access

    11. choose which email to send from and send

    12. in your inbox you will receive a file contacts vcard

    13. save this file

    14. upload this into whatever system you like (f.ex. gmail)


    In my case I wanted to get everything into icloud contacts. The funniest thing: the first vcard file I was able to import from settings import within icloud. the second icloud would not load the file. Solution: I imported file into gmail, exported and then imported into icloud. All worked fine.


    What a hassle for a simple task!!!! But now I have all my contacts in gmail and icloud. I needed to do this because I am changing jobs and lots of my contacts where in my professional exchange account within W10 which will be turned down.


    I wrote this because I would love to save some people time and hassle with similar issue. In the process I got so angry at MS that I was about to trash my PC!!! And researching the subject on the net and reading the official MS replies to many questions I simply got sick at how incompetently or carelessly they treated users questions.

    :)

    export contacts

    Hi Beth,

    The contacts that are listed on your Windows 10 mail app are listed under your People app. The feature to export contacts from the people app is not yet available, but you can log into your People online using your Microsoft account to export your contacts.

    Kindly update us with the results and if you have further queries, feel free to post back.

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    I understand that you are facing issues with exporting contacts Windows 10. I apologize for the inconvenience caused to you.

    Sorry to inform that currently the feature to export the contact list from people app to other application is not available. Though, people app do have feature to share the contact individually to a particular email address.

    We need to click on the particular contact, the on the right side you need to select Share. Then you can share the contact.

    Please provide your suggestion and feedback in Feedback app for improving people app.
