    Windows Live Mail contacts?

    Running Win 10 AE. Windows Live Mail 2012 with gmail account. Also have Office 365 Home installed.

    When I run WLM 2012 and click on contacts it brings up all my contacts, the correct contacts for me. Where are those contacts stored???

    They are not in c:\users\username\contacts. That contains my wife's contact list, have no idea how that got there. Perhaps because I have signed into my MS account from her desktop?

    I found c:\users\username\appdata\local\microsoft\windows live\contacts\default\dbstore\contacts.edb but of course I cannot read that file.

    Help please...

    If it is the correct list of contacts why do you care where they are stored?

    I care because that is not the situation on my wife's desktop after conversion to Win 10. I have another thread about that but got no help with the problem so I thought I would ask again, in a different way. She also gets my contact list on her machine.
