Hello,

You have to go through Microsoft account. First you need to import your Windows Live Mail contacts in your Microsoft account. Open the following link

https://people.live.com/import

Login with your microsoft account. Click Windows Live Mail in the list of options

Click Browse, select the CSV file you exported from Windows Live Mail

Click Upload, click Import

Now the contacts should be in your Microsoft account

The next step is add this same microsoft account in People app. Open People app, click Add Account

Click Outlook.com option and add your microsoft account

Note: If your Windows 10 computer is configured with a local account, then it will be converted to a microsoft account. If you want to switch back to local account, then click Windows icon(Start)-> Settings-> Accounts-> Sign in with a local account instead

Please let me know if you face any problems with the steps

Thanks

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
