Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Finding a contact in seconds, part of Outlook 2013: Tips, Tricks, and Shortcuts.
You don't need to go to the Contacts folder to be able to find contacts. You can, there's a Search Contacts right here for the folder that you're in. Or, for all contact items, or all Outlook items. However, if you're just looking for people, people in your contacts list, people in your global address book, you can simply click Search People, and type the name of the person that you're looking for. And that's exactly who I want, worked perfectly. Look how quick that is. Now, if I have a number of different people, they'll all line up here and I have to choose the person who I want.
