To pin a contact car into Taskbar in Microsoft Outlook 2010 and 2013, you can do as following:

Step 1: Shift to the Mail view, and select an email and show it in the Reading Pane, or open it.

Step 2: Right click the contact picture or picture placeholder, and then select the Open Contact Card (or Contact Card in Outlook 2010).


(1) In Outlook 2013, you can also open the contact card with double clicking.

(2) You can also open a contact card with double clicking an email address of sender or message recipients.

Step 3: In the coming contact card, click the Pin button  at the top-right corner.

Note: In Outlook 2010, you can skip the second step, and right click the contact picture/email addresses of sender or recipients, then click the Pin button  directly.

Then the contact card is pinning in the Taskbar until you close the Microsoft Outlook program.

Note: In Outlook 2013, only if a contact card is opening, you can pin the opened contact card. For example, when you search contact in the To-Do Bar, double click a search result, and then pin this contact card.
