we recetly upgraded from Office 2007 to 2010 and our desktop shortcut was removed. I am struggling to work out how to create one for 2010. I have tried searching online and struggled to find anything that actually opens up the contacts. I have staff that update our mailing list and I don't want them to access my email, just the contacts. Does anyone know the correct path for this?

Software/Hardware used:
Windows 7; Office 2010

    It might be better to set it up so that your staff who update your mailing list share that contacts folder with you - then you don't need to share out anything in your own Outlook.

    You can easily create a desktop shortcut to the Outlook contacts by using the below method:
    1.    Create a new Outlook shortcut:
    •     Windows XP
    Right click on the Outlook shortcut and choose:
    Send To-> Desktop (create shortcut)
    •  Windows Vista and Windows 7
    Type outlook.exe in the Search field of the Start Menu. Right click on it and choose; Send To-> Desktop (create shortcut)
    2.    Right-click the shortcut you just created, and from the shortcut menu click Properties.
    3.    On the Shortcut tab, locate the Target box. It contains the path for Outlook.exe.
    4.    Press the SPACEBAR once to type a space after the path, and then type;
    /select outlook:contacts
    5.    Click OK.
    6.    On the desktop, double-click the Outlook shortcut you created
