  1. Windows 10 mail "we couldnt access your contacts" question


    So when launching the win 10 mail, it shows that "we couldnt access your contacts, please check your contacts privacy settings to make sure you've given access to mail and calendar", how do i stop this from saying it EVERY singel time i launch the program?

    I have no one in contacts and have the "allow apps to acces contacts" option set to OFF, I had stopped using win 10 mail while back, but the program I am using currently, doesn't support Yahoo for some reason.


    TIA for any help

    :)

    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.
