where is "Tools" and more mysteries?

I just downloaded Avant browser, am using it again for the first time in 5 years, since my Macbook died. There's a learning curve. It's the newest version, can't even click on the "A" to find out the version name because it's no longer there. The space at the top used to have the "A", "Tools", and many other buttons, like Bookmarks. Bookmarks is now in a different place, I've been clicking and right-clicking, but can't find "Tools". I open a new tab and it opens another copy of my current page. I used to be able to easily find Avant options, but from what I read I have to find "Tools" first to change the option to "open a blank page". Same for changing the search engine, as the one here has at least a full screen of ads before there are any results with information. I tried to run a forum search for this, but the search returned many instances of finding the word "where", not so much the location of "Tools".

You need to change your skin your traditional ones: Right click the blank area on tab bar>skins>use the skin under dotted line, then you'll see the main menu.
Avant changes a lot in past 5 years.
