Windows 7: Contacts Missing From Navigation Pane

Contacts Missing From Navigation Pane

I don't need to access my Contacts list in Office 2010 very often. I just noticed today that the text entry for Contacts was missing from the Navigation pane. Instead, there was a small icon in the lower right corner of the pane for Contacts. On all my other machines the text entry is present. I've no idea when the text was replace by the icon or why -- it could have been weeks ago.

Will someone please tell me how to get the text entry back?

Thank you very much

Hi.

Could you try clicking that small arrow which says Configure buttons and check if contacts is tick marked?

Attachment as reference.

Another thing could be the height was pushed downwards. Drag it up and see if the text comes back.

Thank you.

Sure, I did that straight away and it was clicked. Removed the click but still no text so I re-clicked it.

Thanks KoolKat77.

Neither of your suggestions did the trick but using 'show more buttons' in Navigation pane options' did.

Thanks for prodding me in the right directions.
