How to find shutter count on Canon 7D ?

I just bought another second-hand Canon 7D.

The EBay vendor (and many others, including private individuals) listed the shutter count for every 7D they had for sale; they had many.

I chose the best looking one that also had the lowest count of all they had and bought it.

They described it as "Good", but this thing looks Mint to my eye; clean as a whistle and not a mark on it.

Anyhow, as we now have five Canon DSLR, I would like to know how to determine the shutter count, especially of this new-to-me 7D.

I found this:

however, I have tried and tried and I can never get it to come up with anything that looks like the picture in Step 4.

When I get to Battery Info and press Set, nothing happens.

I can press Info and get the page where battery serial numbers are listed; pressing Set there wants to know if I want to register the battery.

I tried the trick on two separate 7Ds and a 7DMkII and cannot get what they are showing in Step 4.

Is there some other secret button I should be pushing instead ?

This can't be rocket science to know the shutter count; too many private individuals are listing 7Ds with a shutter count.
