Your Mac is a power computer capable of doing all sorts of stuff — surfing the web, playing games, and even creating websites and applications. But your Mac can also help with the little things, like staying in contact with friends and family. By using the Contacts application, you can save the phone number and address of a friend or family member by adding them as a contact to your Mac.

Here’s how to add a contact to your Mac:

  2. From the File menu, select New Card.

  3. Enter your contact’s details, as shown below. You can add as much or as little information as you like. For example, you could enter the individual’s name, photo, phone number, email address, birthday, and more.
