How may I enable the extra slider icon?

How may I enable the extra slider icon described here http://reference.wolfram.com/language/tutorial/IntroductionToManipulate.html#498667553:

Here in Wolfram Cloud in latest Google Chrome, it is absent:

EDIT: Feyre, in view of the stated opposition to me adding a Wolfram cloud tag to a question not determined to be specific to the Wolfram cloud, I have removed the wolfram-cloud tag you added. If you're certain this question is specific to the Wolfram cloud, please feel free to re-add the tag provided you cite that evidence. Thanks.

For the record: The default controller for Manipulate is the Manipulator which doesn't seem to be supported recently (I bet it was working): Manipulator[Dynamic[x],Appearance->"Open"]. – Kuba – 2016-08-06T13:45:20.263

About the edit ChrisJJ, how is that not wolfram-cloud specific? – Kuba – 2016-08-08T05:57:22.443

I don't know that it is Wolfram Cloud specific. I haven't tried it on other platforms. – ChrisJJ – 2016-08-08T19:08:22.443

I see, it works well on desktop MMA. – Kuba – 2016-08-08T19:10:50.190

@Kuba, OK, so we can at least add a "not-MMA" tag :-) – ChrisJJ – 2016-08-09T11:49:54.590

Example

Note: This will add all them buttons as in your example but you won't be able to hide them.

Manipulate[
 Plot[Sin[n x], {x, 0, 2 Pi}],
 {n, 1, 20, Animator}
 ]

In the above example I omit typing ControlType -> Animator, that's what you'd normally do. It seems to work without it :). I have added reference for ControlType below.

Also, see documentation associated with Manipulate function. Specifically, see Details and Options section. Below is relevant.

The option setting ControlType->type attempts to use controls of the specified type.

Possible control types include: Animator, Checkbox, CheckboxBar, ColorSetter, ColorSlider, FormControl, InputField, Manipulator, PopupMenu, RadioButton or RadioButtonBar, Setter or SetterBar, Slider, Slider2D, TogglerBar, Trigger, and VerticalSlider. None can also be used. ControlType options can be given separately for each variable. Options for the controls can also be given within the specification for the variables.

Output

1Thanks, but the extra slider Icon for which I asked is the one I want. But interesting to see your Animator option - I can find no documentation for it, inc. at your link. – ChrisJJ – 2016-08-07T16:38:59.157
