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

information   Information
The People app is a Store app that is included by default in Windows 8. It helps to bring all your contacts together in one place. See what’s new with your friends, and join in the conversation by adding your own comments and updates. You can quickly add your email contacts, your social networks, the people you follow on Facebook, Twitter, and more to one central contact list when you use the People app.

In People, you might have two or more contacts for the same person. This is usually because you have contact info for that person on different social network or email accounts (for example, Outlook and Facebook). In most cases, the People app automatically links these contacts so all their info is together.

This tutorial will show you how to link two or more contacts together in your People app in Windows 8 and 8.1.

1. On the Start screen, click/tap on the People app to open it.
