how to directly link to a specific contact in Microsoft Outlook 2007?

I?m using Outlook as a part of MS Enterprise 2007.

I?m this person who?s obsessed to using shortcuts. For instance, I?ve created a shortcut group for a client and then add shortcut to their Windows Explorer folder.

This works very efficiently for me. But there?s one more similar shortcut that I would like to have: a direct link to specific contact. Does anyone know how to go ahead with it?

? Options then

? Contacts followed by

? Linking

? Enabled

Re: how to directly link to a specific contact in Microsoft Outlook?

I tried what you said, but as you were afraid it couldn?t resolve what my issue.
What I am trying to do is create a single link to a specific contact. As if I were creating a button.
As I have it now, I have several clients each in their own Shortcut group. This is what I do:

Add Shortcuts to the navigation pane
Add New Group
Right click on the group and add new shortcut.
This gives me the choice of FOLDER to add as a shortcut. Here I add my clients email folder.

Next, I navigate to that clients folder on Windows Explorer and drag the clients work folder to the Shortcut group. If there is a particular application associated with that client (Excel spreadsheet) I would drag that link to the group.
If I add a shortcut in the conventional manner, I can only shortcut to the Contact FOLDER not the individual contact.
What I want to do is have a link directly to that individual client in my shortcuts group to avoid the search thingy.

Re: how to directly link to a specific contact in Microsoft Outlook?

I made my part of research. Unfortunately it wasn?t successful as expected.

Single contacts do not show as selectable options in outlook. The only thing that can be done is to group the contact name. however, it is not recommended, thanks to the performance degradation that you might face.

If anyone else has a solution please post.
