Accepting contacts for windows 8

I cannot find any place where it allows me to accept contact requests. I can add a contact no problem, but even when people add me nothing pops up. They have to actually send me a message or give me a call before I'm allowed to accept their request. Please help. It's becomming quite an inconvenience.

eliscurtis,

 

In the home screen under recent you will see the contacts request.

Click on that request message then Click accept / decline.

Contact Requests DO  NOT APPEAR in "Recent".  How do I get them to appear, or how do I accept a Request if the Contact Request does not appear in Recent?

Re: Accepting contacts for windows 8

too right - it is IMPOSSIBLE to see the contact requests as they do NOT APPEAR under recent. No problem with Apple software though. And why is this STILL not fixed after months of waiting?
