"Test out of this skill" isn't there - neither are the padlocks - any ideas?

Hello, In 'help' it says: 'If you have previous experience with a language and feel that lessons are too easy, there are several ways to advance more quickly. To test out of individual skills (e.g. Basics 1), press the button in the top right corner of any skill page that says “Test out of this skill.” If you can pass this test, you will instantly learn the skill.

If you would rather test out of many skills at once, you can click on the padlocks found throughout your skill tree on the Home page. Passing this test will unlock all skills in the tree up to that point.'

There are no buttons that say Test out and there are not any padlocks either. While I think duolingo is a great tool, I really want to move on as it's very basic. If anyone can shed any light I would be thrilled! Thanks

I see buttons (with a keyhole gif) on my tree to test out of multiple skills at once.

Thank you for answering - I haven't got anything like that - I have 3 'bonus' buttons with crosses in them. Maybe it's the version of Windows I am using. Thanks - I will carry on slogging through - it is good for my typing I guess

Your next (and final one) should be just after past tense. It is a yellow bar.
