    What I usually do is determine Where the original contacts are, what program is being used. Then I determine the format that the destination program can use such as .csv/Comma Separated Values/Variables. Back to the original I determine if that is a format I can use and Export as that then Import on the new. Another way I've done it is similar but Import to the Contacts Folder in C:\Users\USER_NAME and use that for the source for the Import in other programs.

    Thanks for taking the time to respond. I am using a web mail program to export the contacts, and I have it is several formats. What I am not sure of is: "how do get it into Win 10 Mail. I can not find any import form, or any way to vies the contacts. What am I missing..??

    Windows 10 Mail app

    Same issue here but it's a total waste of time calling the Windows 10 tech's because they would not have a flaming clue. I've had them logged onto my PC and they totaly scare me the way they fumble around :-(
