  4. Select Export a file.

  5. Click Next.

  11. Select Finish to start exporting your contacts immediately. After the export process is completed, Outlook will not display any message, but the "Import and Export Progress" box will disappear. Please find the new .csv file on your computer and open it with Excel to verify that your contacts are there. You may have a lot of empty cells. That's normal.

  12. Generally, it is recommended to close the file without saving any changes. Otherwise, the file may become messy, and you will not be able to use the file to import. You can always run the process again and create a new file if it happens.

  13. You can use Excel or a similar tool to update the information in the .csv file. For tips on using the contact list in Excel, see Create or edit a .csv file.

  14. If you borrowed a friend's computer and installed Outlook, you can now delete your account from his Outlook version.

That's it:

a. In Outlook on the desktop, select File> Account Settings > Account Settings.

b. Select the account you want to delete, then select Remove.

c. Choose Close. Now that your contacts have been copied to the .csv file, you can import them to another computer with Outlook for Windows or import them to another email service.
