Try this

If you want to add a field in existing table in PhpMyAdmin, click "Structure" tab while viewing its data, and at the bottom of table structure you have nice box: "Add [number] fields at the [beginning / ending] of a table. Click the button on the right and processd with forms.

Mysql workbench is a GUI that you can run locally and create a database, tables, etc.
And then have the code that you can paste in to create it on the server if direct access is not available.

Instead of posting references to image, if you could describe what issues you are encountering and what it is you are trying to achieve as well as what tools are available to you.

Thanks for the suggestion that I post the name of the tool I am using.  Thanks also for the instruction regarding how to add fields once the initial ones have been added.

I actually liked the initial view for adding fields via this initial view as opposed to this view

AWWW  this is so cool!  I get it now.  Thank you!

I don't think you can get back to the initial screen in phpMyAdmin unless you just recreate the table. The logic may be that you have the table pretty much finished the 1st go round.

but the field entry is there for new fields.  Great stuff.
