How to remove duplicate contacts in Microsoft® Outlook 2010
Transferring of contacts is the main reason that creates duplicate contacts. Duplicate contacts that are present in Microsoft Outlook 2010 consume extra space without any reason. This brings down the performance of the PC and slows down the performance of the application as well. The problem can be avoided by removing the duplicate contacts. This can be done both automatically as well as manually. Manual removal is risky and consumes more time. In this method, the user will have to manually search the whole list of contacts, find the duplicates, and then delete them. There are chances of incorrectly deleting contacts since each one has to be compared with the previous ones. Efficient tools that can automatically search for duplicate contacts and then delete, move, or copy them are available. They can perform the job with just a few clicks in a simple and efficient way.
