I have been following this documentation to see how I can assign a Task record type I created for a profile I have. However, the instructions say Select a profile. The record types available for that profile are listed in the Record Type Settings section. but I cannot find the Record Type Settings section. The closest thing there is is:

Object Settings Permissions to access objects and fields, and settings that specify which record types, page layouts, and tabs are visible But even in there I cannot find the record type I need.


You have to pick an object to assign record types for. So, Setup > Profiles > Profile Name > Object Settings > Object Name > Edit. Note that this is only true if you have the Enhanced Profile Editor. The notes you're looking at are written for the "classic" editor, which presented all options on a single page.
