How do you find contacts in your gmail?
Why would you need to look for contacts on your Gmail if you have a phone? well, suppose your phone got lost or crushed? then you’d have to look for your contacts and quite a number of people forget that they can look for contacts on Gmail. However, if you’ve tried to look for contacts and you couldn’t get them then you clicked on the right article.
Ever since Gmail changed some of their features a lot of Gmail users got confused but not all is lost.
The new design adds Tasks to the new right side panel, which makes sense. But where is Contacts?
The short answer is that there is no quick link anymore. You can add one yourself, though, by using the little-used app drawer at the top right. You know what I’m talking about…this thing:
Click it and you’ll see a bunch of icons for various Google applications. If contacts isn’t there, click the “More” button at the bottom.
You should find Contacts down here for sure.
You can click and drag to re-arrange icons in the drawer, so drag the Contacts icon to wherever it makes sense for you.
Now, you can quickly access Contacts by opening the app drawer, and then clicking the “Contacts” button.
The method we just talked about (using the drawer) opens Contacts in a new tab, which some people aren’t happy with. There’s no way to fix this within Gmail itself, but if opening Contacts on the same screen is really important to you, you can just create a bookmark for Contacts in your browser.
Google Contacts lives at contacts.google.com, so simply open that page and add it to your bookmarks bar. You can now open your contacts whenever you want. Simple, right?
