How can I set my wife's laptop to synchronise with the same contacts list as mine? We have separate Windows live accounts.

Hmm I can't think of any solution, at least none that doesn't require writing macros or code. You want to share a contact list continually, without sharing the account.

A one-time merging of contacts is easy: just export the contact list of your wife's and import it into your own account (on, go to Contacts, Manage, Import/Export); then vice versa.

I thought you might be able to do this using Windows Live Groups, but it doesn't look like you can.

It's not syncing, but you can share them using Contails.
