Fix the contact management in Microsoft Outlook 2016
Fix the contact management in Microsoft Outlook 2016 when composing regular emails.

Building on this, I dont like the way that Outlook searches for contacts when you search by pressing the 'TO' tab. It does not seem there is much of a search there, it only appears to work on one field. Also, I end up with duplicate entries if I make a contact a favourite. There seems to be a subset of contacts that are 'favourites' but if you delete a duplcate it seems to go wonky.
Some specifics (probably many more, but this is a start):
1. When right-clicking an address in a received message to add a contact, it no longer opens a window that will stay until you are finished.
If you do not choose "Save" before you go back to the email to copy, say, the phone, the little pop-up window disappears without saving it and you have to start over.
Then you have to Save > get, say, the mobile phone, right-click the name and choose to edit the Contact, and add that bit. Then you have to start all over to add a web address or other bit of information.
You used to be able to add the entire block of info to the Notes in the right-hand pane, and click and drag phone, physical web address, title, and so forth. The best you can do with this is to add everything to the Notes tab, then copy one item at a time, clicking back and forth between the notes and the contact section - MANY clicks, and going back & forth - very clunky.
If you don't know to save before you go back to the message, everything disappears, and you have to start ALL OVER!
2. These little pop-ups are not keyboard accessible -
A. Very difficult for those of us with Carpal Tunnel, who cannot use a mouse much
B. Very difficult for blind users of screen readers - when accessible at all (which I get the impression from my blind coworker that they are not, since I usually have to stop my work, go over to her desk, and help her with them. She's become a dear friend, and I'm fine with helping her, but it is disruptive to the work flow for both of us, and not a good use of taxpayer money for our government-funded educational institution).
There's more, but will write later, as I have to leave for a bit.
