    When I open my Contacts folder from Windows Mail, every contact has the
    annoying and unnecessary ".contact" extension. I can fix this by turning on
    extensions for known file types, but that affects all folders, instead of
    just this one. How do I change it for just one folder?

    if you have a GROUP defined it changes from CONTACT to GROUP.
    its just a way to easily tell the difference between types of entries.

    It didn't work, because some keys were in use. How do I get it to work?

  5. because some keys were in use

    I get the same message, but the required value is added correctly.
    Did you logoff/login for the changes to take effect.

    Anyway, I've now updated the REG files.
