How to create a shared disk on Azure

Hello,
I had created a VM. Because I would like a shared disk between my local machine and the VM, I tried to create a shared disk. I created a Storage account (compte de stockage) with SSD disk. But at the end of the process, the documentation said "Now, select the menu "Share disk" and it will be ready... Sure, but I don't find any option "Share disk" in the Azure Console... What can I do?

Thank you for your help
Best regards
CVO
