does cubase elements 7 not work with vst instruments?

hi i have a copy of elements 7

i used to use cubase sx many years ago

i never really used my version of elements 7 much, apart from a few remixes which did not require me to devle very deep
but a recent job im doing requires me to start creatign sounds using synthesizers and i realised i cannot seem to access the GUI of any of the stock instruments, there seems to be no button to give me access to this function like there used to be on good old cubase sx

all i seem to be able to access is a window giving me a list of preset sounds

whats different? does elements not take vsts?
