    Cool How can I move Outlook contacts to new laptop

    I recently purchase a new laptop. I primarily use my desktop and want to copy my Outlook 2007 contacts list to my new laptop running the same Outlook 2007. Next question, is there a simple way to keep them in sync?

    The easiest way to migrate is to just copy your outlook.pst file (note this file is hidden).
    The easiest way I have found to keep them synchronized is by moving the location of the file to my Documents folder and then using SyncToy {this can keep the entire Documents folder synchronized between the two computers.}. Whenever I'm leaving with my laptop I run SyncToy job to get all the latest files to the Laptop. When I return I run SyncToy again to get any changes back to the desktop...works like a charm.
