Method 1: Using Google Contacts
You can move all your contacts to Google Contacts and download them to your PC from there. Although, you don’t have to go through the moving process if you already save your contacts to Google Contacts.

Import all your contacts to Google Contacts First, let’s see how to import all your phone contacts to your Google account:

1, Open the Contacts app on your phone and tap on the main menu button at the top-right corner.
2, Select Import/Export option here.Now select the location where all your contacts are saved and tap on Next.Afterward,
3, select your Google account and tap on Next again.

This will copy all your contacts to your Google account. You can repeat the process in case you have contacts saved in both phone and SIM memory.

Method 2: Through VCF or .txt format

If you don’t want to move your personal contacts to your Google account or need a more human readable format, then there is an alternative method as well. You can convert your contacts to a movable format, such as vCard or .txtformat and move it to your PC.

To do this, I am going to use the app Contacts VCF. Simply install and launch the app and it will automatically save all your contacts in your phone’s internal storage in vCard format.

You can also convert contacts to a more simple format, such as .txt or .htmlformat. here’s how:
1, Select the .vcf file in the app and tap on the main menu at the top-right corner.
2, From the menu, you can either select Save as .txt or Save as web page to save it in the respective format.

To move the file to your PC, you can connect your phone to the PC using a data cable and copy/paste the file. Alternatively, you can send it to yourself via email and then download on your PC.

The first method worked fine for me as most of my data is already synced to my Google account, and having access to my contacts from anywhere is always a plus. Although if you need to print out your contacts or need a more human readable format, then using Contacts VCF app is a much better option.
