how do I start a new puzzle

I need better instructions on how to find the puzzles with tutorials and how to start a puzzle. I can get to the description of the puzzle but there is no start button. Do I need to download each puzzle?
I did a few but can't find the way to do it again. There is no tab for Play Online when I log on.
