What happened to SQL view in Microsoft Access?

I am looking for a way to type straight SQL command into Access, not use the pre-formed option that they have as a "fill in the blank" menu where it creates the query for you. Looking at past Access tutorials there used to be a SQL view that has since disappeared. Is there still a way to type pure SQL query statements into Access? The attached picture is the screengrab from the tutorial.

      Do you happen to know where? The only two views I have the option of choosing are Design View and Datasheet view
