Difficult watching these videos and not being able to enlarge them.  Each states the function is unavailable.  Not being able to see the full page or the writing does not help.

The demo that is available for viewing is not the screens that pop up when I click what the woman in the tutorials is telling me to click on.  I have different options under those icons.  Is this tutorial old?  Please update.
