To set up your address (contacts) book by last name:


Note - this only seems to work in 'list' view.

1. Use the "view" menu to "view by list".


2. Right click on the bar at the top that says "email address, business phone, etc."


3. Look for First Name and Last Name in the list and select them (turn them on)


4. Scroll to the right of your screen to see them (they'll be far to the right)


5. Grab them and drag them to the left to reorder the lists. Make certain the last name is first.


6. Click the last name bar to sort by last name.


The alphabet buttons at the right will now go to last name instead of first name.
