    I used file explorer to go to my contacts directory and then selected a
    contact and used "Open with" Notepad. While an intersting exercise I have
    now screwed up my file associations so that when I double click a contact in

    with Contacts?

    c:\Program Files\Windows Mail\wab.exe and see if that works.
