In Program mode, the only decisions that the camera makes are shutter speed and aperture. Everything else--Autofocus mode, Drive mode, Flash, White Balance, ISO, and more--can be changed by you. What's more, through flexible program and exposure compensation, you can alter the camera's initial shutter speed and aperture choices, which means that you have a good amount of manual override without ever leaving Program mode. Program mode is probably where you'll spend the bulk of your time shooting. If your D800 is in Program mode, then you'll see a P right here; if it's not, then you need to get it into Program mode.
If you did the reset earlier, it should have switched to Program mode, so you might try doing the reset again to be sure that that took. You could also simply press the Mode button and rotate your main command dial until you get the P for Program mode.
