Yes, i agree, it (the above by NirSoft) does sort of fit the bill but theirs is more oriented toward email than telephone. It is also not as user friendly as I would like requireing rtoo muych scrolling but in a pinch it does work i agree.
The one I used to have was maybe 5 lines per entry. The data file was on the local drive but the program to access it loaded into memory on boot. Ctrl+P or some similar opened the program at the first alphabetic entry as in "A" or other symbols could get it ahead of "A".
But it was like:
Notes as well as the other lines only showed about 40 characters or so but allowed entry up ti the max for DOS at the time. You had to scroll to get past the first 40 or so.
The Square Display Box was pretty much centered on the screen. And clicking the proper line activated the proper item to use it.
Back then, Modems were connected to phone-lines ad clicking the phone number activate the dial-out feature on the modem
you could hear through the computer speaker and use a microphone or just pick up the phone to access the line that the call was made on.
Clicking the email opened the default ail program (usually Outlook Express back then) and filled that name in the to: box
The street address did nothing. On accessing any record you were automatically in edit mode if you wanted to change anything and pressing Ctrl+A or some such would allow adding a new3 entry to the data file.
It saved automatically when exited.
That is about all I can remember about it other than after Windows XP it would no longer run. It was more oriented toward a wat to quickly find someones phone number (which back then mattered
But is also allowed you to add in notes such things as Birthday, and other things of import to that entry.
I used to store all kinds of things in it because it was TSR and easy to SEARCH. I guess the equivalent today would be something like Sticky Notes which I am not sure are even still used in windows 10.
I hope some of this helps if you decide to continue with the Quest
