I want to reserve my free copy of Windows 10, but I don’t see the icon on the taskbar

I went to www.windows.com/windows10upgrade to reserve a free copy of Windows 10.

According to the instructions, I need to “Click on the small Windows icon located at the right end of the taskbar.”  But I don’t see any such icon.  What do I need to do?
