Creating a Contact Group
into a Group
Select the contacts you
want to add, and then
click Members to group
You can select multiple contacts by pressing Shift or Ctrl as you click.
The contacts you chose appear in the Members text box.
The contacts you selected appear in your group’s list of members.
Outlook creates your new group.
Groups you’ve created join the list of contacts on Outlook’s main Contacts page. In
Phone and List views, groups show up in boldface; in Business Card and Card views,
the group’s name appears as the contact’s name.
Groups have a special icon, which looks like two tiny people, so in List and Phone
views you can easily move all your groups to the top of the list by sorting the contacts
by icon. In these views, icons appear at the far right side of each contact; click the
Sort by Icon button to do this sort.
Note: All your Outlook Contacts folders are automatically available to you in your Address Book—each
Contacts folder is its own mini–address book within the Outlook Address Book.
