You have to create at least one Instrument Track or MIDI Track in your Session for the "Play MIDI Notes when Editing" control to be displayed in the Edit Window Toolbar.

Hmmmm, on my rig, it just works, and has for years. Having said that, I do have a stereo instrument track with a piano plugin in my test session and I can't find "Play Midi Notes When Editing" anywhere in any menu. But I do remember that used to be an option years ago(I haven't looked for it in years as its always working here). Maybe you can post a screen capture showing where you find it?

I'm still on 2019, but "Play MIDI Notes When Editing" is a tiny green speaker icon at the top of the MIDI edit window.

That's the ticket Check the screen shots as they show where to set in the Midi Edit window, and in the main Edit window(red circle)
