Where do I place the test certificate?

First, thank you for your time.

My goal is to test the application I wrote on my local machine - I am not yet deploying it to another server.
 
Within Visual Studio, I created a test certificate.  Using the Certificates addin of mmc, I can see that this certificate resides in the "Current User - Certificates" store.  I believe (and tell me if I am correct), this certificate needs to be copied to the "Local Computer - Trusted Root Certification Authorities" store.

According to the directions I found online, it is simply a matter of clicking on the certificate and choosing Copy.  Then go to the "Local Computer - Trusted Root Certification Authorities" store and choosing Paste.

However, the Paste command is not available to me.  The Paste command is available in other stores just not this one.  Also, the certificate that Visual Studio created has a Key on the icon.  I notice that all the certificates in the "Local Computer - Trusted Root Certification Authorities" store don't have this little Key on the icon.

Again, all I want to do at this time is test my application on my local machine using this test certificate.  

How do I get this certificate into the appropriate store?

Thank you very much.

Since you are in the MMC, simply open the certificate and go to details
Then double click the root certificate and go to details and copy to file.
Save as file.cer and then go back to local computer - trusted root ...
Expand certificates right click and import

Point to the file you just created and complete the wizard.

That's it
