I am a newbie to CraftCMS and just installed my very first Craft Project on local Xampp. Everything looks good except the "Plugin Store" navigation menu is not showing up. Is there any trick or tweak to appear the default menu?

Thanks in advance!

Here's the screenshot enter image description here

You need Craft 3 for that. Looks like you are on version 2.7.4 The link provided gives information about new features in version 3, among them being the Plugin store.

  • As you can see in the screenshot below, I've installed the latest version of craft.. :) prnt.sc/ma5b6m Jan 21, 2019 at 16:01

    You haven't, you're running version 2.7.4, which is at the bottom of your control panel. That's the latest version of Craft 2. The Craft 3.1 in your second screenshot is a news post, not the version you're running. Craft 3 is a major update and therefore not available through the control panel. You can find information about updating to Craft 3 here: docs.craftcms.com/v3/upgrade.html Jan 21, 2019 at 16:11
  • Thanks now I got this. xD But if I have installed Craft3 on my folder why it still showing Craft 2.7.4 version? :/ Jan 21, 2019 at 16:33
