I am using MIcrosoft Office Pro Plus 2019. My PEOPLE view in OUTLOOK is corrupted when I select it, but the other views of my contacts all display normally. I tried quick repair then ONLINE repair, which I think reinstalls the entire suite, but still corrupted. Even if I open other .pst files the view is still corrupted. IT shows just a portion of the first contact and obliterates (hides) the ribbon.

    Hi @Gary Liebisch ,

    Welcome to our forum!

    My PEOPLE view in OUTLOOK is corrupted when I select it, but the other views of my contacts all display normally.

    What exactly is the People view corruption you mentioned?

    Based on my research, i found that there's a similar issue as yours, which mentioned that after updating to Outlook Desktop Version 2209 Build 15629.20156, when you select People to display your contacts, you find that the People View is overlayed by a contact card and you cannot access your contacts. Please check the below image and confirm if it is your issue.

    Hope to help you!
