I ran into a problem today on my Macbook where when I go to System Preferences->Users and Groups , then select my user account and then click “Contacts Card->Open” it opens a 3rd party contacts manager application called “Contacts+”.

What I want it to do is open the built-in Apple Contacts application. I have searched the web, searched System Preferences , and also Contacts Preferences and Internet account settings, but haven’t found an answer.

I occasionally use Contacts+, but I don’t want it to be the default application. The default application will probably switch to Apple Contacts is I delete the 3rd party application , but I’d rather keep it for when I need it.

Ideas? Suggestions?

  1. In Contacts, drag a contact to the Desktop to create a vcf file.
  2. Select the vcf file in the Finder and choose Get Info from the File Menu or type Command-I.
  3. In the window that appears, select Contacts from the "Open with" popup menu, then click the "Change All" button.

Thanks. I’ll try that!
