When reading or replying to an email I used to be able to right-click on a email address in the From or To fields and the context menu would give me an option to add that person to my Outlook Contacts. I used to use that all the time – a great time saver – but I don't see it in Outlook 2013?
It's still there, but Add to Outlook Contacts is only visible if the contact does not exist in any of your Contacts folders, including connected Social Networks.
Tip: Add to Favorites adds the contact to the People Peek that comes up when you hover over the People icon or the word People in the Folder List Navigation bar.
If the contact exists, you'll have an option to Edit Contact or Open Contact Card, both of which opens the new Contact card, not the familiar contact form.
Choose Open Contact Card to see where the Contact is stored.
Open Contact Card will open this dialog. Click the link under View Source to view the traditional Contact form. Tip: click Cancel when in Edit mode (in previous screenshot) to drop into this card with clickable links.
