Where is the Tools tab?

I signed up for Google AdWords today and do not have the Tools tab needed to link Google Analytics, access Keyword Planner, etc. 

 

I only have the following tabs on the top toolbar: Accounts, Campaigns, Reports. 

 

Please advise. Thanks in advance!

normally, the tools-tab is on the main menu-bar,
aside home, campaigns, and opportunities --
https://support.google.com/adwords/answer/1722070

if my-client-center is being used then, a client-account must
be created and selected first, before the tools-tab will appear.

regardless, the tools-tab will only appear after the account is
fully created and the entire sign-up flow has been completed.

also, be certain to reset the browser's zoom --
zooming too far can cause general menu issues.

keyword-planner is mainly designed for paid advertising campaign
research -- not for general keyword or search-term related analysis.

google-trends can be used for more general keyword and search-term analysis:
https://www.google.com/trends/

otherwise, a support specialist may be contacted directly.

That link https://www.google.com/trends/ seems to have been forwarded to a totally unrelated URL that has nothing to do with keyword research.
