    Is there any way to search for a string within the name of a contact? I find that if I type a string, only contacts starting with that string are shown. If the string is not in the beginning, the contract I'm looking for does not appear.

    That depends on what you're referring to by "string". If the string is a complete section of the name, e.g. the second name, middle name, then searching for that string would still bring up all the contacts with that string. If the string is incomplete, then the contact won't show.

    For example, you've got a contact named "José Raúl Capablanca y Graupera". Typing in "Raul" or "Capablanca" should bring up his name in the search results even if his name starts with "Jose". However, typing "aul" or "blanca" will not bring up his name in your search.

    And welcome to Windows Central.
