Chapter 5. Using Mac OS X Applications > Editing an Address Book

Editing an Address Book

Once a contact is placed within the Address Book, it's a simple matter to edit or add information concerning a contact. The Address Book automatically saves the information as you change it, so there's no need to stop and save your work. Editing or updating an Address Book contact involves the same skills learned in creating a contact, with the exception that the information is already there, so all you need to do is edit, add, or delete the contact.

Edit an Address Book

Open the Applications folder, and then double-click the Address Book icon.

Select the Group that contains the contact or contacts you want to modify.

Select the Name from the available cards in the Group.

Click Edit.

IMPORTANT The Edit button is a toggle button, and once it's clicked, you'll be in edit mode for any selected name.

Did You Know?

The Address Book application remembers your location. When you open the Address Book, it loads the Group that you had last used.


Click in any of the fields to edit the existing information.

Click the Remove button (-) to remove a specific data piece.

Click the Add button (+) to add an additional data piece.

To remove a contact from the list, select a contact in the Name column, press the Delete key, and then confirm your delete.

Quit Address Book.
