    I'm a beginner, creating a WP site..... So I'm working on adding new pages, editing home page, etc.....when I click on Pages--->add new page, I never get "Edit Page".....I get a page where I can add text, adjust the headings, a couple of things.....but it does not give me full editing options, such as font, size, any of that. I believe I have the most current update of WP. Any ideas? I see how-to videos and they always show the "Edit page".....baffling to me. Windows 10.

    Wordpress changed with the last major release(v5). If yo want the editor that you are talking about you now need to download the 'Classic Editor' plugin and enable it. The new editor that comes as standard is Gutenberg which is a blocks type of editor that a lot of people don't like.
