Ignition Gateway Home "Get Designer" button not changing to "Launch Designer"

Using Ignition Version 8.0.10, the designer is downloaded, installed and running properly, but the “Get Designer” button on the Ignition Gateway Home would not change to “Launch Designer”.
Am I missing a step here?

The Designer doesn’t launch directly from the homepage since Java WebStart was removed from the jdk in version 9. The downloaded Designer Launcher is an executable that you run like any other program which manages and launches the designers for 1 or more gateways.

For more information, refer to the documentation

Hope that helps,

Some of the videos that I am watching on Inductive University are showing the “Launch Designer” button, so I was wondering if I am missing something.
Your answer explained perfectly what is happening.
Thank you!
