Outlook 2010 (32-bit). I am trying to add columns to my Contacts view so I can view the notes field, however, all the options under View > Arrangement are grayed out:

I have tried a complete re-install of Outlook, running Outlook as Admin, disabling all add-ins except those by default installed, nothing seems to un-gray these options.

Try right clicking on the row of field names above the contacts and choosing View Settings. Or click th View Settings button on the View ribbon.

View Settings has the same results, the options to Group By and Columns are both grayed as well:

Even creating a new view, I do not have access to these options.

You are using Card view. Try switching to list or phone view on the Change View button (first button on the View ribbon)
