I type vncserver and only a background thread starts. I enabled vnc through menu> preferences>raspberry pi configuration but no vnc server button appears at the top like I see in the walkthrough but when I go back to configuration the vnc is greyed out but enabled so I can't disable it. How do I open the vnc server gui so I can login to the cloud account: enter image description here

Enabling vnc from terminal: sudo raspi-config > interfacing options > vnc > yes resolved this.
