I'm trying to copy my contact list to a new windows 10 computer from my Windows 7 computer. Every time I create a CSV file I tick ever box for the fields I want copied but when I import it into my new laptop a lot of the fields are unchecked. Things like surname for example. And there doesn't seem to be any way of correcting this so I just have to create another file, check all the boxes and again it leaves stuff out. Anyone else had this problem and know how to fix it?

A CSV file is a form of Excel file. Have you tried saving your CSV file on the Win 7 machine as an Excel XLS or XLSX type file on the Win 7 machine and then copying that over ?  If you have to, you can always then save it as a CSV file on the Win 10 machine and import that into your contact list.

Are these contacts from Outook? If yes you can export multiple contacts as Vcards. Those may import cleaner but the problem is you can import only one at a time unless you purchase software that will let you import multiple Vcards. I don't know how many contacts you are dealing with.

I could try that, but tomorrow I think.
