Hi Ive been working with computers for over 20 years so Ive picked up a few things on the way. However Win 8 has me stymied.
A mate died and his partner wanted me to set up her new Asus Win 8 notebook. No problem I thought.
Problems from start: wifi intermittent, skype/market not updating (skype unusable).
Found the main cause for above crappy McAffee software.
After about 8 hours battling with the latest and greatest from Microsoft am now left with one final problem:
I have imported all her contacts into the Asus 'Contacts' folder. One would think they would then be available to mail, but no, it appears they must also be imported into 'People'.
Unfortunately, you cant seem to get contacts unless you manually enter, or have a Facebook account or similar.
There is no import option from Windows 8 contacts to 'People' that I can see. HERE is a typical users comments to MS (its worth a read, as the attitude of support staff is interesting).
There appears no settings for the user account within People that allows the User Contacts file to be used.
I trust there is a solution to this very basic requirement, and if so, please lets know here.
Thanks very much.
