How can I print a contacts list, please? I want the name, email and home address of each individual as a list. I have windows 10. I have tried several suggestions on line without success. I don't mind printing them out as labels, say 14 to a page.

what program are your contacts in, windows mail? Outlook?

Windows mail. I have a thousand odd contacts in the folder, many of which I don't want. I am in the process of copying the fifty or so which I want to a new sub-folder.

Thank you Fruitbat. I don't really want a csv file as it puts each address on one long line. Isn't there a way that it would print as labels, say 14 to a page?

Trenny, in Windows Live Mail, open the Contacts section, go to "Print" and choose the option that best suits what you want. Or I am missing something?

You can use the CSV as a data source and use "Mail Merge" in your word processor program to create the labels you want.

By the way, this is the third thread you've started since November of last year. Stick with this one and don't forget to reply.

Right, secret squirrel, I have created a csv file.How do I get it into my word-processing program (ie word)? The csv file is currently in Excel. I use windows 10.

Yes, I fear that my mental powers have deteriorated badly with age, but I battle on. It is so frustrating.

I don't know if it is the fault of PC Advisor, but I keep getting half page adverts on the screen, which doesn't help.

I was hoping that you'd know how to do a mail merge. It is a tad complicated unfortunately, but essentially, you open Word, start the "Mail Merge Wizard", choose "Labels", choose your CSV as the recipient list, insert an "Address Block" and also the email address. You will probably need to do a bit of tweaking to match the fields and make the label layout look good. If all of that sounds too daunting then Google your version of Word and the keywords "Mail Merge" and hopefully you'll find an easy-to-follow step-by-step guide.

I've just tried it and it does work. If you get stuck at a particular place in the process then get back to me.

...but I keep getting half page adverts on the screen, which doesn't help.

Install the Adblock Plus add-on in your browser. It will make a massive difference, especially with sites like this one that are overloaded with media-rich advertisements.

Good luck with everything.

Many thanks for telling me about adblock. It certainly did the trick.

I'll work on the mail merge otion and close this thread.
