    Undo combined contacts


    I have just added a contact to the Windows 10 people app, and was given the choice of combining this contact with another. This I chose to do with a family member of my contact, but now all the telehone numbers are put together and I do not know which one goes with which brother. How can I unlink these combined contacts?

    :)

    outlook.com contacts not syncing details that were duplicated in Messenger contacts info after Messenger contact removed

    Have you tried Manage(at the top), 'clean up contacts'?

    You will be presented with a list of contacts that may be duplicates You will have choices.

    "These look like matches. Clear the checkbox for any you don't want to combine."

    Clean up duplicate contacts

    You can combine duplicate contacts into a single one with all the contact info.

    Use “Clean up contacts”


    • In People, click Manage, then click Clean up contacts.

    • Within each contact set, clear the check box for any contact you don’t want in the set.

    • Repeat step 2 for all contact sets, and then click Clean up.

    Search and combine manually


    • In the People search field, type the name of the contact you’re looking for.

    • In the search result, select the contacts you want to combine, and then click
      Link.

    Undo a combined contact
    When a new combined contact is created, the original duplicate contacts are then deleted. If you accidentally combine two or more contacts that are actually different people, here’s how to restore them.


    • In People, click Manage, and then Restore deleted contacts.

    • Select the original contacts you want to restore, then click Restore.

    • Click the incorrectly-combined contact, click Delete, then click
      Delete again.

    Undo combined contacts

    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.
