Hi @defaultmdn7ajsm2kqj    You can double-click the Pattern in the Swatches panel or go to the Object menu and choose Pattern > Edit / Make. You are currently looking in the View menu.   I'll move this to the Illustrator forum.   ~ Jane

That menu is Illustrator not Photoshop, but you have posted in the Photoshop forum. Which application do you need help with?
