Have you been dragging and dropping it into the box with the dashed lines? (see my screenshot)

That would be how you get started. If the widget doesn’t drag over, there are a few possibilities. One that I’ve ran into with the interface being non-responsive is the website not having enough memory due to the “PHP memory limit” is set low at some hosts. 

If you go to “WordPress Dashboard > Elementor > System Info” and go down to the group “Memory Limit” - you’ll want to check that that is reading at least 256M. If it is below that, you should contact your hosting company to see if it can be increased.
