None of the groups I had previously created in hotmail are showing up in the new hotmail outlook. I have read your suggestions for other people, but when I open People there is no tab on the top that says Groups. Only 'Save as Group'. So I have tried to re-create groups but when I can start a new group, with the same name as an old group it tells me I have a group with that name already...I just can't find it to add contacts to it. This email is used for a non-profit soccer club, which means I have 20 different groups with 100s of contact. I woudl hate to loose this information or the ability to add new members to existing groups. I appreciate your response.

Could you please link to the other suggestions so that we know which ones you're referring to? – batpigandme Jun 15 '13 at 13:40

Please follow these steps to be able see your groups and to add/remove/modify group properties:

1- If you are in Outlook, then click on the down arrow beside the Outlook logo on the top left. Alternatively, go to the People page here and sign in if you aren't already signed in.

2- You should see something along these lines:

Now, your groups and individual contacts are in the same list. Type in the name of the group to filter it.

3- You can tell it is a group because of the logo beside it.

4- Click on the name of the group and then click "Edit". Now, you can modify who is in the group.
