No run button on Backup tab in Toucan 3.1

I decided to give Toucan a try after the PortableApps platform backup failed numerous times and no resolution to that issue has been forthcoming. I set up a backup job in Toucan, on the Backup tab, then proceeded to give it a whirl. Then, I discovered that there appeared to be no way to run the job from the interface; i.e. there was no "Run" button. I checked the online documentation, which clearly shows a button labeled "Run" on the application's Backup tab, but no such button appears on the version I just installed (3.1). There is a "Run" button on the Sync tab, but I'm not looking to sync anything; I just want a simple backup. So, how do I run my backup (from the interface, please, I'm not looking to enter a command in the Windows Command window)?

My initial attempt at this is on my work PC, running Windows 7 (I have 10 at home).

Screenshot

Could you please post a screenshot? The only thing I can think of is if the window somehow spawned too narrow. Or if you're using a very low-res screen (800px wide is not wide enough for the UI).

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Oh, there it is

I was going to post a screenshot as you requested, but, first, I maximized the GUI window - and, there it was. When I initially open the app, the window that opens does not take up the full screen, and I assumed that everything I was seeing was all that there was (I'm kind of used to seeing scroll bars when there is more content in a non-maximized window than fits). So, the Run button is there; just not in the reduced window that initially opens. Thanks for responding.
I do have one other question however. How do you post a screenshot? It would be helpful to know how to do so for other questions I might post. I know how to take one (using either Windows Alt-Print Screen) or the Lightscreen portable app, but I don't see any option to attach anything to a forum posting. Can I just paste it directly into the space where I'm entering the Comment?

Imgur, etc

Use a service such as Imgur, and post a link. We don't allow direct-posting of images.
