I am using Outlook 2007 on a Windows Vista Home Basic operating system.  The default view of my Contact address card only shows the name and phone numbers.  I want to make a few more fields visible for all my Contacts.  The Detailed Address Card view shows too many fields.  How can I customize the Contact Address card to show more fields?

To customize the address card in the Contacts page in MS Outlook, you need to do some changes in view pane in Outlook. Because if you want to see more option other than name and phone numbers then you need to increase the number of lines in the multi-line layout to see all the information. To do that, follow these steps:


Open your MS Outlook >> click on the Contacts page >> click on View.

Click on Current View >> click on Customize Current View >> click on Other Settings.

Under Other Options, in the Use compact layout in width smaller than x characters, change the value as per the requirement.
