Clicking on Scratch 2 to open it but nothing is happening. any help please?
It seems odd that there's a link there if it is not installed. You can check if it is installed using "sudo apt list scratch2" in a terminal. On my Pi 3B, before installing it -
And with it installed ( "sudo apt-get install scratch2" ) -
You can also try "scratch2" as a command in the terminal which may give some indication as to what the issue may be. It could be that scratch2 simply doesn't run on a Pi B+. I don't have one to hand to check.
looks like that might be the case -

I believe it requires an ARM7 processor or better; it will fail with a segmentation fault if you run it on ARM6-based boards.
And that's what you have if it's a Pi B+. Raspbian and/or the Raspberry Pi Desktop isn't smart enough to hide links to things which won't run in my experience, so you probably have the link, and Scratch 2 installed, even though there's no hope of it running on your particular hardware. There being no feedback when run from the desktop or menu when it doesn't work isn't very helpful. Running "scratch2" from the command line will likely show the segmentation fault.
Some software will report when it cannot run on ARMv6 but most just crashes.
