Default HTML tutorials for 8.5 PLE problem

I'm a newbie again so I'm working with the HTML tutorial that ships with 8.5 PLE.

I'm doing the helmet tutorial and I've reached a point where I am to smooth the cube.

It tells me:

"With the cube still selected in the scene view, select Mesh > Smooth > , and set the following options in the window that appears..."

I cannot find "Mesh" anywhere in the menus. How can their own tutorial be so wrong?

Where is this tool?

Thanks in advance.

You should see a dropdown box directly underneath "File" in the upper left of your screen. Select Polygons from that dropdown box. Then you should see the mesh menu.

Hope that helps you.

Thanks, Perfecto. It's been awhile since I swam in the Maya waters, but it will come back to me.
