    Hi! Frank Claikens is correct!  The share button doesn't appear until completing the tutorial and is now found at the top menu.  We appreciate your feedback and are always looking to improve the user experience. The most recent MakeCode update impacted our content, and we are reviewing instructional support materials to reflect the update and see where we can provide better clarity around this specific function you have brought up. Thanks!!

    The sharing option becomes available when you finish the tutorial.

    You can test this even without completing the task: click on the 'next'-button on the bottom of the left column 8 times, Then click on the 'done'-button...

    Now there is the sharing-option in the top menu.

    It is a bit baffling until you get used to the tutorials. They kind of grab control a bit. It makes sense, when you think that they are making sure you are headed in the right direction. The share button appears at the end, as described above. Also, you cannot go create a new project unless you at least scroll through to the end of the tutorial. But the tutorials are extremely helpful. Please always feel free to reach out, and let us know if you have more questions.
