[1] When you have a contact highlighted in "Contacts", is there a keystroke that will dial that contact's phone number?

[2] Is there a way to have Outlook open to the Contacts screen?

I'd be most grateful for your emailing any answers to:
[email protected].

Many thanks,

Steve

[1] I don't see one, specifically. Right-click and choose Call contact. I don't see anyway, even customizing the toolbar since putting a "Call Contact" button just provides a drop-down button anyway. Seems this would require scripting, and you'd have to decide whether work or home would be the number you'd choose to call when you hit the shortcut key. You can also try this website: http://www.outlookcode.com/

[2] Tools-->Options, Other tab. Advanced Options button. Choose "Startup in this folder" to be Contacts.

Many thanks, Anne--

The tip for having Outlook load to the Contacts screen works perfectly.

I've made a macro (with Macro Express, a great program). A keystroke clicks the phone icon and dials the number of the highlighted contact. I have separate contact entries for John Smith-Home, John Smith-Work, and John Smith-Cell, so that's no problem.

Best,

Steve
