Step 1: From the Destination List, click on a destination to
edit.

I think the wish/want is implied and doesn't need to be stated. After all,
they aren't going to click on a destination that they don't want to edit,
are they?

In my response to my previous example, some list members said they would
not
use the word "wish" in technical documentation. How would you rephrase
this, for example?

Step 1: From the Destination List, click on the Destination you "wish" to
edit.
