Any Help Appreciated effect - Macromedia Fireworks

Help please.... I installed Fireworks today and was trying to take the tutorial when I discovered that my "effects" panel is not working. The other panels such as fill and stroke have a pulldown list when I click on the down arrow. But the down arrow on the effects panel is muted and there is nothing there. I have tried to "locate plug-ins" but when I go to the "presets" folder under configuration, there is nothing there. I am at wits end. I don't know what to do to fix this. Can anyone help? TIA Shashay...

    Help please....

    I installed Fireworks today and was trying to take the tutorial when I
    discovered that my "effects" panel is not working.

    The other panels such as fill and stroke have a pulldown list when I click
    on the down arrow. But the down arrow on the effects panel is muted and
    there is nothing there.

    I have tried to "locate plug-ins" but when I go to the "presets" folder
    under configuration, there is nothing there.

    I am at wits end. I don't know what to do to fix this. Can anyone help?

    TIA

    It sounds like you're working with Fireworks 4. I just want to make sure I'm
    referring to the right geography, in terms of the interface <smile>.

    For Effects to be applied, in general, you have to have an object selected
    on the canvas.

    Hey no problem. If you look at something long enough, you miss things. I
    know I have.
