Can't generate Genius playlist on PC

iTunes 12.5.4.42 and a PC. Following some help videos, I tried to generate a genius playlist by doing the following: Right clicked on a song, but the dropdown menu didn't contain "generate a genius playlist," only had New Playlist. What's up?

It looks like they removed that based on a discussion I found on the Apple Forums.
https://discussions.apple.com/thread...art=0&tstart=0

In that thread there are a few work arounds:
If you have the old Remote app on an iOS device: https://discussions.apple.com/messag...essage30249921
You can create it from the file menu (for now): https://discussions.apple.com/messag...essage30400343
Use the Genius Suggestions menu: https://discussions.apple.com/messag...essage30245873



Have you backed up your iTunes Library this week? If not, you are risking losing your music and playlists....

I don't know, maybe I missed something before. But now when selecting a song and File>New> Genius Playlist now appears in the drop down and brings up a selected playlist from the chosen song???

It apparently does. Not being a genius user, I don't really know.
