I'm an absolute Blender newbie and just taking my first steps. I've created some shape and want to apply coloring and texture now, after placing lamps all around my object to see it, I now can't switch to Edit Mode and I'm not sure why, can anybody help me please?

I only have Object Modein the mode selector:

I'm using version 2.79 on Windows

    $\begingroup$ Select object which can have other interaction modes first; switching interaction modes is done on the active object. Most likely in your case you have lamp selected and it can't have Edit mode; select a mesh. @rob if there aren't interaction modes available in the dropdown list then Tab won't work as well as it will face the same issue $\endgroup$ – Mr Zak Jan 9 '19 at 14:59
  • $\begingroup$ @MrZak you should put that in an answer $\endgroup$ – Bombinosh May 5 '19 at 16:12
