Okay, thanks for clarifying that. The first thing to try is resetting your Preferences, which usually clears out most issues. The instructions are here: https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/using/preferences.html#Manually

 

If that doesn't work, can you post a screenshot of your entire workspace with the layers and the selection? You can block out anything personal or send the image to me by personal message. Are you using Windows 10 or 11? And please confirm if you are running the latest Photoshop

@Gvantsa263975836uqy You need to have a selection of something in your image or document first in order to use the Modify options for that selection (see my example). Do you have something already selected but for some reason, the menu is not available? Are you working on the right layer that has the selection? A little more info of what's going on will help us help you.
