I had to import a contact address list to current list and there not in alpha order. I tried the setup and view but neither works. Is there a method /setup that would put them in proper order? thanks

the file is in WAB and came from my other network computer both running WIN 7. It just added to my current list and I can't get them to merge in alpa order. You think there would be some way to get them together. Any suggestions ? thanks

where are all the super stars!

3 days ago under this sub topic I asked which seemed to me a simple question " how Do I get my contact list into alpha order". I've had some 60 views and 2 basic questions, but not one reply from the numerous "super stars" on this site. Is the Question just to elementary? If it is, tell me so and I'll get on with it.

I've read other replies from the "all Stars" on varies Questions asked from how do i burn a CD to loading Windows 7 back wards. I'm sure, in many cases even Microsoft's Chief Engineers couldn't understand the replies.

Oh! perhaps a Simple and Precise answer doesn't look intelligent.. but sometimes it's the best answer.

I really regret posting this message but I'm disappointed as there so much knowledge by so many on the site which would be useful even for simple questions.

Should I look else where? No! because I have received some excellent help over the past months with Windows 7 but sometimes it's good to get something off your chest and carry on. So it be written....

Is it possible to print out WLM contact list?
I need it to take out of town with me. Right clicking only allows me to do something to the list itself. The task bar with WLM has no printer icon. There must be one of those secret combinations of keyboard characters which will allow me to print it, right?
