Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

Hi, I'm new here, trying to help the Red Cross mapping Nepal. In the instruction video I saw several preset options to define objects. But when I log in, I only see some (not important) Dutch objects that aren't relevant. How can I get the preset options like building, path, track etc?

Thanks Manon

"But when I log in, I only see some (not important) Dutch objects". Please clarify - where did you log in (URL)? What button did you click afterwards? Did click "Edit" on the openstreetmap.org?

I used tasks.hotosm.org, than followed the steps, let OSM choose a random task and than choose "edit with ID" as recommanded in the instruction video. Did I miss a step? Thanks!

Ok, that clarifies things a bit. Why didn't you put that into the question? We can read minds, you know :-). If you choose "edit with iD", it should drop you into the iD editor, and show the region you chose. Try deleting all cookies for openstreetmap.org, re-login, and try again. If it still does not work, edit your question to list the exact steps you took, then maybe we can help. Good luck!
