When I create a new Contact in Outlook, I get the traditional Contact form which I also got in previous versions of Outlook.

However, once I’ve saved an closed this form, I can’t seem to get back to it anymore.

The Contact Card doesn’t contain all the fields from the full contact editing window that opens when you create a new contact.

The Contact Card also displays by default when you search for a contact.

When I double click on a contact in the Contacts folder, it opens a contact card which only list a few of the details which I can edit and a Notes section.

I get a similar contact dialog when I use the Search People box on the Ribbon.

Clicking on the Linked In or Facebook link will take you to their respective on-line profile.

If it only says Outlook, it will take you to the contact on the website.

Key Outlook 2013: As this value probably doesn’t exist in your Registry yet, you’ll need to create it first.

Note: When you double click on a contact in the People module, it will display a limited Contact Editing form which does not allow you to open the full contact editing as it doesn’t have the View Source section.
