Need to place a quick call to someone in your Contacts list?

This How-To Article shows you a Microsoft Outlook feature that allows you to quickly call a contact from your Contacts list.

Important Note: This How-To Article assumes that your computer's modem is connected to the same telephone line that you use to place phone calls. Otherwise, this information contained in this article won't work for you.

2. Right-click the contact you would like to place a call to.

3. From the menu that appears, select "Call Contact...".

4. Click "Start Call".

5. Your computer will now dial the contact's phone number. Once your computer has dialed the number, you can pick up the phone to talk with the contact.
