A contact may contain more information than just its name. You can view the rest of a contact's information in the Reading pane.
Click a contact in the list.
The contact appears in the Reading pane, displaying the information that's been added to the contact.
If the contact has extra information, such as a Notes field, extra headers will appear at the top of the contact card. Some information will be initially hidden from some views; double-click the contact to see the details.
While the default People view can be useful for quickly seeing information, you have several other views you can use to browse your contacts.
Click the Change View button on the Home tab.
Select a view.
People: Shows a list of your contacts with the selected contact’s information displayed in the Reading Pane.
Business Card: Displays contacts as electronic business cards.
Card: Displays all the information about a contact on a card. This is the most detailed view of the contacts list.
Phone: Displays contacts in a list with a company name, business phone number, business fax number, and home phone number. Shows more contacts on the screen at one time but has less detailed information.
List: Displays your contacts in a table and sorts them alphabetically.
