No Edit for Admin

I did a fresh install of WebMatrix (the Beta) and a first time install of Orchard.

I choose the 'Blog' instead of the Default.

When logged in as Admin there is no 'Edit' controls on the zones (as the tutorials show).  Other than the 'Welcome Admin! Sign out'.  It looks the same as when I sign out.  I can see in the Dashboard that the Admin is the Super User.

Is there something else I'm supposed to do to activate the Admin account so I can edit the site?

Obviously I'm new to Orchard.

You have to enable the Control Wrappers. Go to Modules in the Dashboard and enable the features "Content Control Wrapper" and "Widget Control Wrapper".
