Default Customizing the default contact form in Outlook 2010

Is there a way to customize the default contact form in Outlook 2010? When I try to edit it, a very different form opens up. I would appreciate to be able to edit the original, since all the people in our small company already have their contacts in the default forms, they would just like to add details.

This post is very similar to my question:

Jackissimus,

I also currently use Outlook 2010 and create several new contacts a day. Normally i double click the already created contact in my contacts list and i'm able to edit all fields as it was from time of creation. Once a contact has been opened i can simply select details to add details.

As far as customizing the contact form, i have not found anyway to do so.

Hope this helps.

Hi,
by "adding details" I meant adding new fields they can fill. Specifically fields like cell1, cell2, email1, email2, email3, all of these without having to scroll through menus. Then separate address, city and zip code fields rather than one address field. That's better for using with GPS on our synchronized mobile devices. Then a new skype field. I am from the Czech Rep., we use skype and cells here a lot. So things like that.
I always wanted to have these things in my contacts, but I didn't know I could edit contacts form. Now I know, but I am disappointed that I cannot actually edit it. And there is not much documentation about it either.
I appreciate any help or hint you give me.

Jacob

I edited the second page of the form, made it visible and then used this article to make it the default form:

Nice i was able to also change the registry for Outlook 2010 and confirmed it worked.

Glad this is resolved for you.

Until the next thread.
