Below the (optional) description box is the Select files box. At this point, you can choose to drag and drop your file directly into the box, or you can click the Add link to search for your file on your computer to add it via a search window.
The File picker window should now be open. On this window, make sure the Upload a file tab is selected on the right, and then click the Choose File button. If the Upload a file tab is not highlighted in red, you must click on it first before you will see the button.
