Just read the tutorial for the improved smart sharpen which includes the ability to sharpen only midtones, etc. The tutorial shows a menu with 3 sections. The one that shows for me is the old smart sharpen menu. How can I find the new improved menu? I have a PC and PhotoshopCC Windows 10

Check Help->System Info for the specific version you are using.
Check the Creative Cloud app for the latest releases and updates.

Thanks Chris for the quick answer. Cloud says last update was 24 days ago. Apps shows "open" button, no update button. I think that means that it is up to date. I still cannot get the three part smart sharpen menu that an announcement video plays when I open PS CC. What do you think is the problem?

Again, check Help->System Info for the specific version you are using.
The Creative Cloud includes 4 full releases of Photoshop: CS6, CC, CC 2014, and CC 2015.
