Windows 7: Is there a way to simplify the email addressing procedure in WLM

Is there a way to simplify the email addressing procedure in WLM

When addressing an email, I begin by clicking on "to". Then the list of contacts appears and I have to click on the contact's name, select from "to/Cc/Bcc" and then click on the 'okay'. This seems to me to be a rather laborious procedure. ... Is there a way to modify WLM to simplify the addressing procedure. For example, after selecting (to/cc/bcc), a single click on the contact adds the addressee without having to move the cursor over to the far end to hit "OK"?

A small item, but I'm all for simplifying things if possible.

I store my contacts in my Hotmail account, use it to sign-in to WLM, add my other accounts & delete the Hotmail account. Now I'll never lose my contacts & only have to click first letter of person I'm sending mail to then highlight it to select it if their are others with same first initial letter.

Thanks for the response. Unfortunately I don't have a Hotmail account. I'm trying to simplify my life.

I use WLM 2011 version. See if this works for you .....
In the To field, type the first alphabet of the recipient's name, a list of names will show up to be picked. Click the name you want and the address will be entered in the To field automatically.
Note : I enter my contact list by Last Name first. So, if I want John Marko address, I type " m", not " j ".

P.S. If there is more than one recipient, make sure you have a semi-colon in between names.

Assuming you are responding to my reply..... You are welcome.
Not a shortcut. It's the right way that I know of.

Please post back the result after you give it a try.
