Can anyone help me please? I bought a new laptop yesterday, it has windows 8. Now aside from windows 8 being the worst sotware I've ever been unfortunate to be subjected to, when I downloaded the Skype app, there is no box, no drop down list, nothing, seemingly ANYWHERE, to click and "add contact" or "add email address" - the only thing I can do is type in a phone number, which I don't want to do. All I want to do is add other people who have skype so I can make computer to computer calls.
Having searched many many many times on google for a solution, it seems I'm the only one on earth who has this issue. Can someone please help? It's the most infuriating situation I think I've ever encountered on a computer.

1. Start Skype Application.
2. Right-click anywhere on the screen or, if you have a touch screen, swipe up from the bottom of the screen, to bring up the options bar. Tap or click add contact on the right of the options bar.
