Instant Search is for searching your personal contacts. And you can see their information in the reading pane, or click a source to view more details.
Find people and contacts
Click People at the bottom of the screen.
Above your contacts list, click the Search Contacts box.
Note: You might be tempted to use the Search People box, which is in the top right corner on the HOME tab. That works, but only if you type the person’s name (or part of their name). You cannot use this box to search on things, like phone numbers or addresses.
Start typing the person’s name, or other information you want to search for, like a phone number or company name.
Tip: You can search for complete or partial information. For example, if you are searching for someone named Chris Preston, you can type their full name, or simply type “pre”.
Click the person you want from the search results.
