Where can I manage the linking of contact details from multiple sources (Facebook, Windows Live, Exchange) in Outlook as I can on Windows Phone? If this is not possible, this needs to be considered in the future as I have some contacts with multiple Windows Live and Facebook accounts, as I am sure plenty of users will have, and Outlook is linking these incorrectly.
You can manage your linked contacts within each contact card. When you view a contact card There is a Link Contacts link. You'll use this to manage the contacts that are linked to each contact.
If you don't see the Link Contacts link in the People view, open a contact and hover over the email address field then expand the Contact card. Alternately, you can right-click on the email address and choose Open Contact Card from the context menu.
The contract card will open and look like this contact card.
Each linked contact will be listed under View Source.
When you click on Link Contacts, the dialog shown below opens.
Click on the X beside any name to unlink it from the contact. (The X is visible only when you hover over the name).
Type a name into the Search field to search for Contacts to link to the contact. Select the names you want to link to the contact.
