Simple (and may be stupid) question - how to include (if it should be included or plugget in) Glossy BSDF in my Blender 2.79?

I'm follow a manual video (this), where user just input "glos" in Cycles search and Glossy BSDF appears at search result.

So, I can't repeat that because can't find Glossy BSDF by search menu (look at screenshot below).

Please, help!

Thank you!

    $\begingroup$ Cycles? - You have Blender Render active. $\endgroup$ – michaelh Aug 12 '18 at 12:40
  • $\begingroup$ Thank You, @michaelh! It's my first experience with rendering with node editor. So, please, may You tell me - what should I do to get a glossy BSDF? As I understand now, I have a mistake - open Blender Render. My bad. What should I open to? $\endgroup$ – DimXenon Aug 12 '18 at 12:53

    $\begingroup$ You have the wrong render Engine activated. You are not using Cycles, but Blender Internal (Blender Render). That is why you don't see the Glossy Shader. Look at the top center dropdown. - Change it from Blender Render to Cycles and you're good to go. $\endgroup$ – michaelh Aug 12 '18 at 12:55

Try changing "Blender render" to "Cycles render".

click there

click at the region pointed, and select the render engine "Cycles render".

    $\begingroup$ In the top header there it shows in the OP that 'Blender Render' is indicated - this is where to choose 'Cycles Render' instead. $\endgroup$ – Craig D Jones Feb 18 '19 at 18:46
