Some how I removed my Contacts from the left side of Gmail. I know I still have them but I cannot find out how to list them as all instruction state "Click on Contacts on the left side", but, as I say I have removed this access somehow.

How can I restore this facility?

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

Is there a [+] sign next to the "Mail" label under the Google logo? – Kerri Shotts May 10 '11 at 21:50
That's it. Thanks. Please add this to your answer for others. – Xavierjazz May 10 '11 at 22:24

Click the gmail logo (left corner under Google) and the option gmail, contacts and tasks will come up. Obviously, click contacts.

Its a weird place to have put it... But hope this helped!

I'm working on how you get your Contacts back into Gmail, but until then, go to https://www.google.com/contacts and you should see them there.

Update 5/11/11:

If there is a [+] icon next to "Mail" in the upper-left corner, click it, and it will expand to reveal "Contacts" and "Tasks".

Plus 1. That worked, thanks. – Xavierjazz May 10 '11 at 21:50

Check your Better Gmail 2 Firefox extension settings, un-check:

Relocate contacts and tasks to top navigation

Where would I find that? – Xavierjazz May 11 '11 at 19:39
My guess is that "better gmail" is either a Chrome or Firefox extension. Not everyone has it installed by default, but if you do have it installed, some settings can do very funny things. (OTH, it is a nice extension. I've used it a lot in the past.) – Kerri Shotts May 12 '11 at 3:40
