  1. Click Change View and select List to switch to List view.
  2. Click the column header you want to use to sort the list.

    The list is sorted alphabetically by that column.

  3. (Optional) Click the column header again to sort in the reverse order.

Sort in Groups

Some fields, like Company and Category, will also group your contacts together when you sort by them.

  1. Click the View tab on the ribbon.
  2. Click the Arrange By button.
  3. Select an arrange option.

    While the contacts are grouped, you can collapse a group to hide its contacts.
