Show coordinate grid

I'm working on a bot for a 2D game, and I want to check correctness of my formulas. I was going to model geometric situations with GeoGebra to see if I'm getting correct coordinates, angles, etc.

For the most part GeoGebra is pretty intuitive, I like it. However I couldn't find anywhere a way to show coordinate grid, so I could see coordinates of my drawings.

P.S. in case it matters, I've downloaded "GeoGebra Classic 6". I see there're other downloads too, but they aren't available for my platform, probably some secondary utilities.

I'm not sure if I understand quite well what you're asking for, but if you want to display or hide axes and grid, you can do this by clicking on the Toggle Style Bar icon (1), where you can find the options for showing axes and/or grid (2)

Oh, thank you, this is weird: the first time I ran the app, it lacked the grid, and I'm not even sure I saw the icon you're talking about. But now it's all there. I wonder if the change could've been because later I found there is an online version of the app, which asked me if I want to restore my previous work, to which I replied "No", then closed the page.

Just in case: I definitely did not disable the grid, until now it wasn't there.

FTR: I've probably witnessed some bug — I can't reproduce it anymore. The first time I ran it, the app lacked not only the grid. Through google I found there should be some kind of terminal to get coordinates of points — I couldn't find this terminal either, it just was not present. I don't think the icon mentioned in the answer was present either.

I assume what fixed the problem was that after I closed GeoGebra, I found the online version of the app, which asked me if I wanted to restore my work, to which I pressed "No", and closed the page.
