How can I display User-defined fields in General view, instead of clicking

"All Fields"? Can I customize or edit the General view design? I'm using

Outlook 2007.

Yes but it reverts to the old contact form, not the one with pictures.

Diane, thank you for your post. I don't need pictures. If I'm OK with the old

contact form, how do I do it?

from any open outlook item, click the office icon to expand the menu then

choose editor options at the bottom - third item on list in Popular section

is to show the developer tab. Select it.

From a contact form, go to the developer ribbon and choose design this form.

Make your changes and test it, then publish it.

to make it the default for a folder, right click on the folder and choose

properties. Select the new form from the dropdown for posting new items.

Any chance of this changing, to allow us to keep the photo? I really need

that to help me remember faces of my business contacts, but I'd also like to

be able to display Nicknames...

Diane, I greatly appreciate your instructions here. Might I ask a

follow-up: once you've designed and published a new form, how do you

get existing public contacts to open using the new form rather than

the default? Any new records I create use my new form, but existing

records still use the default form.

Many thanks!
