I have followed the advice from the Skype website on how to add a contact in windows 8 by right clicking on the page then selecting the + contact symbol. There is meant to be an options menu that then pops up but all that happens is the computer search sidebar comes up. What I am i doing wrong?

Select the contact then Click add to contacts.
