Windows Live Messenger is a popular instant messenger for the Windows operating system that gets constantly improved (and renamed) by Microsoft. Live Contacts View is a portable software program by one of our favorite developers Nirsoft that can be used to manage the contacts in Windows Live Messenger. Manage in this context meaning to display the contact information of all Windows Live Messenger contacts and the ability to export them into various other formats.
Live Contacts View is therefor useful in situations where Windows Live Messenger might not be accessible, where contacts need to be sorted and accessed quickly and where contacts need to be exported into other formats for further processing.
The software program will automatically recognize the default Windows Live Messenger account and has an option to select another account just in case that is needed. This also might come in handy when running one Windows Live Messenger profile and accessing the contacts of another without having to switch accounts or running a software to run multiple instances of Windows Live Messenger next to each other.
Live Contacts View displays various information about each contact including nickname, email address, names or phone numbers. Some or all of the contact information can be exported into various formats including csv, txt, xml or htm. Live Contacts View is compatible with most Windows operating systems including Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7.
