I know how I'm supposed to add new contacts with the Windows 8 app, but it doesn't work! I right-click, I click on "add contact", and instead of doing what it's supposed to, it pops up the Windows 8 search sidebar! Is it working properly for everyone else?

HAve you merged your Hotmail/Outlook contacts with Skypes?  If you have you can add the contact in the usual manner and if unfiltered it should show up in Skype.  Does it?

Um, if that's part of whatever it automatically merges with? I don't use Hotmail or Outlook.

Oh, geez, is THAT what's going on here? *facepalm* Okay, so it's not buggy, it just needs a redesign or hint text or something so it doesn't LOOK like it's being buggy. Thanks muchly.
