Outlook Right-Click Function not working

When I right-click on an email address in the "from" box, I do not get the prompt to add that address to my contact list.  Did my settings get messed up? How do I fix?

I have the same issue.  I'm running Outlook 2010 (14.0.7163.5000) on a Windows 10 home (build 10240).  In addition, when I make changes to views (reading view on the bottom, sort order, etc.) the changes aren't remembered after a restart.  I'm thinking that I've got a settings issue as well.

Solution! I finally called our tech support contractor and he fixed the issue.  You are most likely running Outlook in Safe Mode which disables some functionality.  In my case this was likely due to a corrupted installation of a Microsoft Office update.  Here is the fix:

Good luck with this.  It took him about 30 minutes to fix it.
