Confused by an instruction, think there might be a mistake in it

Question

I don't think that it' possible to install a mod from the MO Settings menu, but the SR instructions call for doing that. Shouldn't the instructions direct the user to click the "Install a new mod from the archive" icon, on the far left?

 

 

 

During the above process, Mod Organizer created an exact copy of the "Vanilla Skyrim" profile into a new profile named "Skyrim Revisited". In the Prerequisitessection, SKSE was installed without the required script files. This preserved a pristine vanilla Skyrim/Data folder but SKSE will not function properly without the supplied scripts. They will now be used to showcase how to add a mod to Mod Organizer. Perform the following steps:

Click the small screwdriver and wrench icon adjacent to the "Profile" drop-down and select "Install Mod...".

Navigate to the downloaded SKSE archive and click [Open].
Replace the default text, if any, in the "Name" text box with "Skyrim Script Extender". This is the name that will be displayed in the left pane post-installation.
In the file tree, navigate to the "Data" folder inside the archive, right-click and select "Set Data Directory". Only the Scripts folder should be visible and checked.
Click [OK].

I see what you are referring to now! I think I was confused because you were describing the same icon image, just in a different spot and a different size.

The screwdriver should be replaced with the icon on the top left. It looks like a tower with a disc in front.

Guys, the little screwdriver and wrench to the RIGHT of the profile drop down selection bar. It has a little down arrow on it as well. However EssArrBee's method also works, just with a bigger button. :)
