How to enable grid on screen?

The screen is just grey, and a grid would be useful as a visual reference. How can I turn it on?

You need the Game Overlay button in the Scene View.

Search the Scene View manual page for "game overlay" for a picture and description. It's between the lighting and audio buttons.

Thanks a lot, that was really helpful. Any chance you have any other tips for a complete beginner. Yeah im a bit clueless, but am looking at other tutorials...

That would have been my suggestion. There are a lot of tutorials out there; google "Unity3d tutorial", or just search answers.unity.com for "tutorial" to see what other tutorials are being talked about.

In Unity 4 this has moved. You need to go to the Scene View and there is a drop down box on the right now called Gizmos. Upon clicking the drop down box there is a check box that is labeled Show Grid.

This is now how you turn it on and off. I'm posting this because I googled this problem and this page showed up. I just want future people to not have to be confused.

EDIT: Unity 5 apparently has this in the same place as my unity 4 explanation above.

Unity 5 has it in the same place: The Gizmos tool-button at the top-right of the scene window (just to the left of the search scene items textbox). It took me a bit to spot it, so thanks Gaugeforever. :-)
