    Open Contacts. Right click in an empty area of the window. Select Properties. On the Customize tab, select Contacts from the "Use this folder type as a template" drop down list. Press Apply and then Press OK.

    Contact groups are designed to be used with Windows Mail, and are sometimes called mailing lists.
    1. Click to open Windows Contacts.
    2. On the toolbar, click New Contact Group, type a name in the Group Name box, and then fill in the boxes on the Contact Group tab and Contact Group Details tab. You don't have to fill in all the boxes; just type as much information as you want about the new contact group you are creating.
    3. Add contacts to the contact group in any of the following ways:
      • To add individual contacts to the group from your existing contacts, click Select Members.
      • To create new contacts and add them to the contact group, click New Contact.
      • To add new people to the contact group without also adding them to your individual contacts, type the appropriate information in the Contact Name and E-mail boxes, and then click Add.
    You can send an e-mail message to a contact group using Windows Mail. To do this, open Windows Contacts, right-click a contact group, point to Action, and then click Send e-mail. This will open a new e-mail message in Windows Mail addressed to all the members of that contact group.

    To restore the missing New Contact and New Contact Group toolbar buttons follow these steps:
    • In Windows Explorer, navigate to the C:\Users\(user name)\Contacts folder.
    • Right click on a empty space in the main middle pane of the window and click on Customize This Folder.
    • Under the What kind of folder do you want, click on the drop down arrow next to the listed template.
    • Click on Contacts to select it.
    • Check Also apply this template to all subfolders if you want to change all subfolders in the Contacts folder to the Contacts template as well.
    • Click on OK.
