Default Help a noob get going?

Having had Silent Hunter 3 on my son's previous laptop, which he then managed to spill tea over, we got a new laptop. Son noticed there is a newer version of Silent Hunter, so I paid £29 to get that on Steam.
Loaded it, ran it, got to a starting screen with the Actions on, with all four possible missions shown as locked. I contacted UBI support with a GamePlay question, and over the course of about two weeks and repeatedly telling them they weren't answering my question, they have finally told me today that they only deal with technical issues, not gameplay.
How do I (or more likely my son) even unlock and try to start the training mission? I understand the principle of gaining points to unlock later parts of games, but to have the training mission locked seems harsh.

I really should put in some nautical reference at least, but I'm so disappointed that the one game my son asked for hasn't even got past the welcome page. And UbiSupport have been shocking.

Silent Hunter 3 was okay, this seems to be a feature of 5.
Spent £29 quid on the game that my son really wanted (the only request for a game on his new PC that he made) and he can't get into the training mission to start earning rewards.
Ho-hum. Just as well he likes War Thunder - which was the game I installed for him after UbiSoft decided to just wave us away rather than help us get started.

For the older and less computer savy

Trying to get back into SH5 these days as problems with saving games in SH3 but there's a few things I can't sort out.
1. can't for the life of me work out how to get the dials in the new UI's TDC 750 Dark Wraith
2. Crash dive starts about 20 seconds after i order it, (too late!) How can I change that?
3. Out on patrol when enemy sighted the game goes to x64; far too late especially in foggy weather when your suddenly dead!
4.Tried the sobers list but game screwed up and crashed too often so tried following order garnered from looking at a few mod soups. Seem OK?

Screen shot

Is there a way to take a screen shot when in full screen (I have succeeded when playing in window mode) as when I try the SH5 game screen closes to the task bar and I am left with the Ubisoft screen.
I have used various snipping tools the latest that I am trying is Snagit which is good on all but Silent Hunter.

Yeah I noticed that one too. Since I played unmodified, I discovered that being at 5-6 meters ("heavy") beforehand, shaves off 50 seconds when put to a crash-dive situation. Particularly convenient when in a surface attack at night to reduce the silhouette from those nasty merchant Liberty gunners 6" guns, and when-ever under enemy air-cover avoids surprise attacks! Actually works in all the SH games. You can still use the deck gun at 5 meters-wear boots!
