    What has to be done for merging contacts with People app on Windows 8?

    I have saved multiple contacts of a single individual into my smartphone running on Windows 8. But, they appear as separate contacts in contact list. I need to merge these contacts into single contact. What should I do for that?

    Get into the start screen and open the ‘People’ app. You can also launch this app after getting into ‘All Apps’ page. After that, select the contact you need to merge from the contact list. It is possible to use the search function if there are too many contacts in the list. Tap the contact for getting into contact information page and find out an empty space. Right click on that space until you can view a menu. Hit the ‘Link’ option from that menu and click ‘Choose a contact’ to search for second contact. Once you find that contact, tap over it to merge the two contacts. You can then hit the ‘Save’ button for saving all the changes.

    Hi.
    To add a contact list from one of your accounts
    >>On Start, tap or click People
    >>Swipe in from the right edge of the screen, and then tap Settings.
    >>(If you're using a mouse, point to the upper-right corner of the screen, move the mouse pointer down, and then clickSettings.)
    >>Tap or click Accounts.
    >>Tap or click Add an account, select the type of account you want to add, and then follow the on-screen instructions.



    To add contacts one at a time
    >>On Start, tap or click People.
    >>Swipe up from the bottom edge.
    >>(If you're using a mouse, right-click within the app.)
    >>Tap or click New contact.
    >>Enter the info you want for this contact, and then tap or click Save.



    Thank you.

    Dear guest,
    In a windows phone you have your contacts under the people hub. Its a fun and interactive way of displaying contacts you have. You can also merge your Facebook friend list, this hub also holds contacts from other accounts such as windows live, google, outlook, yahoo, etc..
    You can also save contacts via contact share app from your previous windows phone. All this system keeps the states of your contacts as different persons. But still windows smartphones lets you merge a number of contacts of a same or similar person:

    1.scroll to the right where all apps are seen.
    2.tap on the peoples hub tile.
    3. Select the contact that you want to merge.
    4. At the bottom you will see option buttons.
    5. One of them will be like a chain end (link).
    6. Tap on it, you will see the suggested contacts.
    7. Select the contacts that are of the same person.
    8. Contacts will be merged.

    Thank you...
