From the File menu at the top-right corner of the Microsoft Outlook address book window, click New Entry, and select New Contact under Select The Entry Type. Under Put this Entry, select Contacts from the drop-down list, and then click OK.

Provide the contact details on the new page. The contact details fall into different categories such as Internet contacts, phone numbers and addresses. Under the Internet tab, the required information includes the email address and website address. Under the Phone Numbers tab, the required details include business, home and mobile contacts. Under the Address tab, provide the mailing address for that particular business or home.

Click on the Save & Close icon located in the Actions group of the Contact tab, near the top-left corner of the Microsoft Outlook address book. To add another contact without closing the address book, click on the small down-facing arrow next to the floppy disc icon on the Contact tab, and then select Save & New.
