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.
