quick find box

I must be doing something very basic wrong.  I'm having a problem creating a connected app.  Step 1 in the  instructions at https://help.salesforce.com/apex/HTViewHelpDoc?id=connected_app_create.htm&language=en_US#basicinfo (https://help.salesforce.com/apex/HTViewHelpDoc?id=connected_app_create.htm&language=en_US#basicinfo) say

"From Setup, enter Apps in the Quick Find box, then select Apps." 

but I can't find the Quick Find box!  When I click on Setup, I'm taken immediately to Force.com setup page, (https://na34.salesforce.com/setup/forcecomHomepage.apexp?setupid=ForceCom&retURL=%2Fhome%2Fhome.jsp). 

I don't see anything marked "Quick Fix."  There is a box that says "Search All Setup"  but when I type Apps in that box, it says it can't find anything.  . 

Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong?  

Thanks.

Can you try searching for apps as shown below?

You can see 'Apps' under create. 
Click on that and then click 'New'.

Hi Howard,
You can create apps from the below path:
Setup -> Build -> Create -> Apps

Or you can click on the 'Manage Apps' link under 'Quick Links' section in Setup and click 'New'.
Please let me know if you face any issues and mark the answer if it solved your question.

Thanks
Shyama

Hi Shyama,

Thanks very much for your reply, but unfortunately neither of the options you mentioned worked for me.  I've attached a screenshot of my Setup page.  This is where I'm taken to when I click on the Setup button at the page.  There are no menus which allow me to click on Build. 

Secondly, there is no option when I click on Manage Apps, as you'll see on the left of the attached screnshot.  There is a link for Connected Apps, but no "New" button for creating them.

I should have mentioned earlier that I am a brand new user testing Salesforce out in a 30-day trial.  I don't know if that has any bearing on why I'm not seeing what you see.Force.com setup screen

Or in the middle of the setup page you can see different sections like 'Getting started', 'Recent items' ,'Quick Links' etc. In the 'Quick links' section, under 'Apps' click on the 'Manage Apps' link and click 'New'.
