First of all, I just began exploring blender and I'm going through some tutorials right now. I'm stuck on finding the options in the Specials menu after pressing W

no options shown
Can somebody help me out with this?

I think you meant to go into edit mode. – Vader May 12 '14 at 20:28

The options available by pressing W are context sensitive -- they differ depending on what mode you are in, i.e. Edit mode, Object mode, etc., and also what type of scenario you are in. For example, if you are in Edit mode with a mesh object, you will get different Special Options than if you are in Edit mode with a curve object.
