    Hi! Please bear with me; I'm really new to Unity.

    In previous versions of Unity, the UI button (for creation of a new UI) can be found either under the GameObject heading or under the Create heading of the Hierarchy window. However, in the 2019.2.3f1 version I'm using currently, it isn't in either location.
    How can this be fixed?
    Thanks in advance

    I'm not using 2019.2.3f1 yet, but you don't ever need those "Create" options. They're just shortcuts. You can always just create a new empty GameObject, and then add the components you need (Canvas in this case).

    HTH,

    Unity UI is a package now. Do you have it installed? If you don't, you need to install it through the Package Manager (opens through the Window menu).

    Alternatively if this is a new project you could try resetting packages to their defaults by clicking Help then "Reset Packages to Defaults". This has been helping some people with a similar problem.
