Windows 7: How do I get duckduckgo.com into search providers in Add Ons?

How do I get duckduckgo.com into search providers in Add Ons?

I want to add Duckduckgo.com search provider to the list of Search Providers in Manage Add Ons. I am using IE10 and I have looked in help but what I am being told to do does not tie up with what I am seeing on the screen. I think the answer is to get Duckduckgo into the list of Add-ons in the Internet Explorer Gallery but even then I am not sure what to do. Any suggestions please?

Any help would be appreciated.

Did you try this?
DuckDuckGo | Internet Explorer

My screen snip is from IE10, but I didn't try to install it...
