You need to have an active document to inserts these elements in. Until such time, all constructs will be shaded/unavailable.

To create a new document, the easiest way is to use File > New > File.

@ Wener Nothing happend. – user31177 Jul 11 '13 at 4:45
@user31177: They're now active, it seems. You just can't seem to get the additional images/icons to display, right? What version of TeXnicCenter are you running? – Werner Jul 11 '13 at 4:51
@user31177: My TeXnicCenter version is 2.0 Beta 1 (64 bit). I just filed a bug/user report to see whether this is something that could be fixed. – Werner Jul 11 '13 at 5:31
