Hi Luke - It sounds like you may be viewing Mylio Photos using a Workflow and/or Space. Please ensure you’re in the Everything Space and that the Workflows option is set to All Tools. (scroll down to the section on Workflows)

The Dashboard button in your screenshots doesn't exist on the app for me. There's nothing below the Settings button on the left side bar.
