    How to delete duplicate contacts from People App on Windows 8?

    Hello, Am using the people app on my windows 8 system which I have purchased from Windows store. For the first time I have synced all the contacts and email addresses from my phone and was using till now without any issues. Now I observe that most of the contacts appears twice, I mean the contacts are duplicated and saved in the same location where originals are saved. Its being very difficult for me to search for any contact which is in between the list. Please help me how do I delete only duplicates without affecting to original data. Let me know about the procedure that I have to undergo. Thank you.
