Strokes for vector shapes on CS5

Hey, I'm practicing on an old computer with CS5, and the menu options for vector shapes does not look the same as in CS6. Can anyone tell me how to add a stroke to vector shapes on CS5?

Make sure your shape is selected. Go to the stroke tool window. If you can't find it go to window/select "stroke", make sure check mark is there. In stroke tool window either type in a number in the "weight" box to make stroke or use the selector arrow for default weights.

Select your shape layer, then go to the "Layer" tab on the top, select "Layer Style", and click "Stroke".
