I was using Windows Live Mail on my computer running Windows 7. Now I want to upgraded to windows 8 Pro. How can I import contacts into Windows 8 People app?
You cannot directly import contacts to the People app in Windows 8
* First Export Contacts to .csv file. In Windows Live Hotmail, click Options | More options… > Export contacts link under Customize your contacts, and save your Windows Live Hotmail address book to a CSV file.
* On Surface Pro or Windows 8 computer, sign in Windows using Microsoft account (Hotmail/Xbox/Windows live ID/Outlook.com), login into http://people.live.com with the same account, click import from file button, and select from outlook or a CSV file.
* After all contacts are imported, log off and log back in with the same MS account, and then they will show up in the people hub.
