How to Add Contacts to People App in Windows 8 and 8.1

information   Information
The People app is included by default in Windows 8. It is your address book and your social app all in one. You can add your contacts, see updates on social networks (like Facebook and Twitter), and keep in touch with friends and family on Skype—all from a single app.

The People, Mail, and Calendar apps work together and share contacts from the People app. When you email a contact from Mail, the app picks up that person's email address in the People app (which is where their contact info lives).

This tutorial will show you how to add contacts to your People app in Windows 8 and 8.1.





OPTION ONE
To Add Contacts to People app by Adding Account


Note   Note
When you add an account (ex: Outlook or social) to your People app, all contacts from that account will be added to your People app.

4. When finished, you can close the People app if you like.​





OPTION THREE
To Add a Contact to People app from Email in Mail app

The Mail and People apps work together, so if you added an Outlook.com or Exchange account, your contacts are automatically added to the People app. For all other accounts, you need to add the same accounts to the People app to get your contacts, just like you did in the Mail app.

1. On your Start screen, click/tap on the Mail app to open it.​
2. Open an email message that was sent from who you want to add as a contact, click/tap on the name (ex: Eight Forums) of the person who sent it or any of the recipients, and click/tap on Add contact. (see screenshot below)​
