Hello, I have not yet filed. I need to update my filing status to show I am a dependent. Which section will let me edit this?

I am in the process of filing my federal return. I need to get back to the section where I can update my filing status because I am a full time student and my parents can still claim me. I mistakenly answered that no one can claim me, but I was wrong and need to fix before I file my return.

See the TurboTax Help article How do I indicate that I can be claimed as a dependent on someone else’s return? for guidance in updating your information.
