Hi Syed!

The gear icon looks like this: http://screencast.com/t/U5hwkzPQ8y0Z

It's in the top left hand corner of the screen just to the right of your email address and account ID number Smiley Happy

Here you go, it's at the top right corner in your AdWords interface.

@Amy - I think you meant to say the gear icon is to the right corner of the screen.

 

@Syed - The gear icon is actually the means of accessing 'settings' for your account. Please a screen shot of the same below:

As you can see in the screen shot, it will give you access to the various billing and invoice related information along with the major account settings like time zone, currency and auto tagging feature for your account.

 

Here is an AdWords help page that can help you understand the various notifications and the settings tab on your account: https://support.google.com/adwords/answer/1704338?hl=en

 

Hope this Helps!

 

Cheers!
