Cannot see Page Editor or Hello Tab in my salesforce instance

Hello all:
I am trying to learn Visualforce using excercise in Developer Documentation
https://developer.salesforce.com/docs/atlas.en-us.202.0.workbook_vf.meta/workbook_vf/creating_and_listing_2.htm

I checked Devlopment Mode in my Advanced User Setup and was able to get a Congratulation message after typing /apex/hello at the end of my salesforce instance url.

However, I do not see the area where I can write apex code (the bottom section).  How can I get that?

Thanks for your help.

Regards,
Munira

Note :- You need to enable developer mode on your user
1) https://developer.salesforce.com/docs/atlas.en-us.pages.meta/pages/pages_tools_edit_toolbar.htm
2) https://developer.salesforce.com/docs/atlas.en-us.apex_workbook.meta/apex_workbook/apex_visualforce_1.htm

To enable Visualforce development mode:
  1. From your personal settings, enter Advanced User Details in the Quick Find box, then select Advanced User Details.No results? Enter Personal Information in the Quick Find box, then select Personal Information.
  2. Click Edit.
  3. Select the Development Mode checkbox.
  4. Optionally, select the Show View State in Development Mode checkbox to enable the View State tab on the development footer. This tab is useful for monitoring the performance of your Visualforce pages.
  5. Click Save.

BTW, I had customized my salesforce instance's URL. I want to go back to login.salesforce.com. By any chance, do you know how to go back to the original url?
