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.
