How do I file an extension?

Extensions can only be filed, with TurboTax, through their online form.  

I have the desktop version so I needed to login to the online account and file the extension.

No, you can complete/file an extension on the desktop version as well.  Click the "Other Tax Situations" tab at the top of your TurboTax screen.   Scroll down to "File an Extension" and "Start."
