Can't open a task in PyCharm Edu

The PyCharm tutorial at says "open a task." The help says you do that by clicking on Tools. My menu bar shows File, Edit, View, Navigate, Code and Help but not Tools. I can bring up "Task Description" but not what it shows in the video, namely "Task Text." What am I missing? Missing a plug-in? Failing to open a window with "Tools"? Is the JetBrains video out of date? Do I need to log in to the course?
