    They are called groups. When you open the Contacts folder, there should be a
    button on the toolbar for "New Contact Group"

    Your Contacts folder has apparently switched from it's proper default
    template.
    Open Contacts
    Right-click on a blank area of the right pane, and select "Customize this
    folder"
    in the pull-down box, select "Contacts"
    ok

    You are welcome.
    Just remember how to do this... because Vista seems to forget, or changes
    the folder file template sometimes.
