When you click this on a computer, you will be asked to choose which wallet you want to link. Choose MetaMask from the drop-down menu. You should see a QR code appear. The “Connect Wallet” button sometimes only shows a QR code and does not allow users to choose MetaMask. That’s OK. Below is an example of a QR code from Foundation.
