Learn how to search your contacts in Microsoft Outlook 2010

Click in the “Search Contacts” field and just type in who you are looking for. Here I will type “Nancy” and immediately I get the result “Nancy Roberts”.

I can search for any field that I have in my contact card. So for instance if I search for “170”, I get the result of our Emirates Golf card, if I open this up you can see that I have our membership number in the “Note” section starting with “170”.

You can do more advanced searches using the “Search” tool bar. To find a contact marked with a specific category, I will just select the category, and here I will select the “Customer” category. And then I can narrow the search down even further by adding the company and just typing the name of the company.
