Opening People Outlook 2021

Outlook version
Outlook 2021 64 bit
Email Account

i have office 2021 and using Outlook 2021. I migrated over from using Outlook 2013.

when i open my "people" (contacts list) it always opens my default address book which is my hotmail contacts. I also have a separate pst file that has all of my contacts and i named it "outlook data file", this also has my calendar.

How do you get Outlook to open by default my other address book? Please note i have no issues when creating an email, if i click on the "To" button, it opens the correct address book.

When i open my calendar, it does open my "outlook data file" by default.

i have attached a jpg showing the two address books. again, when i click on the "shortcut" to open my contacts...this is what i see. i just can't seem to remember what i did for Outlook 2013, where i had the same 2 folders, but it always opened the "outlook data file"...please help!
Hi, at top right click on Address Book, then you can adjust what contact list as default display.
