Windows8 loss of email contacts

New laptop. Windows 8 People only comes up with contacts beginning with D J K L. Nothing happens when I click on any other letters. How do I access other contacts.?

Are you sure you have contacts other than those that appear? Have you moved from another PC to this one and if so have you moved all your contacts?

Yes, I have numerous other contacts. I have moved from a PC to laptop, but why would some contacts have transferred and not others? Everything was set up for me at PC World, so could it be their mistake?

I would go back to PC World and inquire . You will need both the old PC and the laptop in order to try again to move the contacts across.

You don't say but I assume you are using the Win8 email feature.

Contacts are in fact stored on your 'slot' on the yahoo server you will have to log into n for your mail page probably

Log onto yahoo via your browser click 'mail' look at your contact list there.

Actually seeing. 'Web mail' in this way is safer han through a 'client 'aapp.
