Illustrator Foundations

So, I decided to give in and subscribed to Creative Cloud and I'm trying to follow along with the Illustrator Foundations Creating an Icon tutorials.

My problem is when I select the shape, I have to select the Free Transform Tool to be able to resize my shapes. Watching the video, Mat Helme just selects the shape and resizes. Did I blink and miss something? I know on the video, he is using CS6, but I'm sure I probably did something by accident on the clipping mask part of the tutorial.

Other than that, I am enjoying the tutorial(s), and so far no other issues. Just this one thing is starting to bug me... Thanks.

You probably turned off the bounding box. Go to view menu and turn on show bounding box.

Oh, thank you very much....That works. :)
