64-bit Vista

I had the same problem, but this series of steps still didn't work for me because the Properties dialog box didn't show the Customize tab illustrated in the instructions above. I noticed that the this particular set of steps worked on the 32-bit version of Windows as indicated in one of the first few comments, so the difference between success and failure of these instructions may have something to do with different versions of Windows. I have the 64-bit version of Windows Vista and, in order to change the folder type, I had to go about things a bit differently. I had to first activate the menu bar by choosing Organize > Layout > Menu Bar. After the Menu Bar appeared at the top of the Contacts folder, I then had to choose View > Customize This Folder. That is where I found the Customize tab and changed the folder type to Contacts.
