Basic shapes in Corel Essentials 8 - How?

I just purchased Corel Essentials 8 and I really really regret this purchase, because I am trying so hard to get a simple response from anyone at tech support and no one will give me an answer. They just keep sending me a ticket number and the odd time they just send a link that does not address my question at all.

All I want to know is how to make simple squares and circles in this program. Could anyone tell me how? The only way I can figure out is to do it freehand, but I want to create some figures with squares and circles. Keep in mind that I'm using Essentials 8. Whoever is "working" in tech support sent me a link to some other Corel program, and it certainly did not apply to Essentials 8. 

Please help!!
