Hi All - I'm having a slight problem with Windows Mail. I sorted this out for someone else many moons ago but for the life of me I can't remember how I fixed it.......
Instead of the usual options across the top I am getting the same options as if it were my 'Pictures' folder.
And this when I select a contact as recipient for email:
As you can see these are all wrong....how do I change them back to what they should be? I have tried all options I could find for resetting folders, etc.

Hey Smallships...me ol' china plate. You are right of course, I should have posted the fix for others who may experience the same common problem:
In Windows Mail, open 'Contacts' window and right click in a blank space. From the drop down menu select 'Customize This Folder' and then click on the 'Restore Default' button....that's it, all done. It's an easy fix but like a lot of things it's only easy when you know how.
If anyone has any ideas why this happens, what may cause it....we would love to hear from you!!

Hi Ozbloke , thanks for posting the fix , but I have another two penneth to put in, I checked my Contacts folder this morning and it had changed back to "Pictures and Videos" folder , so I took your advice and hit the Restore Default which did absolutely zilch , why I do not know , so I had to click the fold down box and click Contacts before it would change back to Default , maybe I should check the "Also apply this template to all subfolders" but as far as I know Contacts does not have subfolders ?....."WHY IS IT SO ?"
