Default quick question about face selection

I have a quick question about face selection. In this tutorial I see the guy selecting faces, by dragging a box over blue dots in the middle of the faces. but when I right click the object -> Faces I get a diffrent way of selecting them. How do I get the blue dot method to work?

Thanks.

Yeah, it is in preferences, in the selection section, check "select faces with" to "center".
