Time for another article on contact cards?

The kidlets at Microsoft have done it again! The edit option been removed from Outlook contact cards. Now there is no way to quickly update information for a contact using the people search box. Instead one has to go to the contacts tab and scroll through the contacts in order to update information for a contact. This is a serious productivity impediment.

Diane once wrote an article about how to change the people search feature so that it opened the contact directly instead of the contact card, but now I can't find the article. The extra step of clicking on the edit button didn't bother me too much, and with the new contact cards showing far more complete information, the need to click the edit button merely to show complete data is greatly reduced. But now that the edit button has been removed entirely, I need to change this.

Might be time for Diane to write a new blog post on this topic. Hoping an article from her and a maybe an email to someone she knows at Microsoft might wake someone up. I posted in Feedback hub, but despite Microsoft's claims, I don't think they bother looking at that. Does anybody at Microsoft THINK about how their software is used before making UI changes? Sheesh.
