I am trying ot authorize a computer.  Apple support states:



Authorizing and deauthorizing a computer allows you to manage which computers can sync or use apps, audiobooks, books, music, movies, or other content you've purchased from the iTunes Store.

You can use or sync your purchases from the iTunes Store on up to five different computers (these can be any mix of Macintosh or Windows-compatible computers). When you sync or play an item you've purchased, your computer is "authorized" for purchase using your Apple ID.


  To authorize a computer using your Apple ID 

  1. Open iTunes
  2. From the Store menu, choose Authorize This Computer. (In earlier versions of iTunes, access this option from the Advanced menu).
  3. When prompted, enter your Apple ID and password, then click Authorize.



I can't locate this menu. HELP.
