Windows 7: I can't see my Hotmail Contacts

I can't see my Hotmail Contacts

I've almost always used Win Live Mail (me @ msn.com), but was advised this week to switch to Hotmail after my e-mail was hijacked & bogus msgs went to a lot of my contacts (& a few that are not my contacts).

I'm not "comfortable" with Hotmail. WLM is just easier for me to work with, maybe because it seems more like old Outlook Express. Anyway, I'm having trouble navigating within Hotmail. Things seem to change in subtle ways (& sometimes, not so subtle) from session to session or within a session. I'm sure I've clicked the wrong place, but . . .

In Hotmail (Outlook) all my folders are listed on the left. Yesterday(?), my contacts (& I think some other stuff) were listed at the bottom of that list. Maybe I somehow collapsed the contact list & then saw contacts. Today I can't find contacts anywhere. Where are they?

Hi jarhtmd, This may seem unimportant at present but, how many contacts do you have.

I just found them. I "knew" it was staring me in the face all the time . . . the down arrow (upper left, next to "Outlook").

Patience is a virtue as is good eyesight. Hope all's well now.
