  • $\begingroup$ In the Edit menu disable the Lock Object Modes option (so that you can keep your armature in Pöse mode), keep the bone selected, shift select the mesh, switch it to Weight Paint mode $\endgroup$ – moonboots Jul 28 at 4:58

I believe you need to Tab into OBJECT mode. From there, if you grab the drop down window (that you note in your screenshot), Weight Paint should be available.
