How to Import Address Books into mail?

I have been trying for some time to find how to Import an Address Book /
Contacts in the Outlook email program which came with Windows 8.1. I
thought I nearly hand it----it ie. Mail Migration --- was supposed to
be explained in the link I reproduce below. But the link does not
work! Every Search I use says the webpage does not exist.There must be a way to Import addresses, surely?

Thanks for the various postings. I have resolved my problem. I had a look at Windows Live Mail which I had heard o,f but for some reason was under the impression it was not much good. The reverse is true, it is the best email program I have seen by far ---- but in particular it has a perfectly clear Import / Export option. My csv Address Book imported into it with ease and furthermore, when I opened the previously empty People pages were populated with with my email addresses. So it seems an easy way to import into People is to do it via Windows Live Mail.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
