If you are saving single files you can just drag and drop the .vcf files/vCards from Outlook Contacts to the location where you want to save them. If you want to save a contacts list (or the entire address book), do the following:
• In Outlook Contacts, go to the File tab >Options > Advanced.
• Click Export.
• In the Import & Export Wizard, select Export to file
• In Create file type, select the file type you want
• Next you will be prompted to select your contacts folder and the folder to which you’re saving
• Now Save and Finish.
If you have Windows 7 you can do this from the local folder. Go to C://user/contacts
, there you will have an export button. Once clicking Export a wizard similar to that of outlook will open up, just follow its instructions. One note in this case: you must create a folder within the local contacts folder (e.g. C://user/contacts/Backup
List) and place in it the contacts you want to save for the Export button to appear.
