Hello Forum, I am new to Cadence. I have designed this differential amplifier and I need help with finding the AC and DC Analysis. I don't know where I should select on the design to get the AC or DC Analysis. I would really like someone help me. I also would like to know how could I tell if my amplifier is actually amplifiing the signal.

You should open the ADE L/XL/GXL application and then run all the desired analyses from there.
You can google for this issue and search over the internet,there are lots of tutorial step-by-step for this kind of analyses,how to set them,run them erc...

I also would like to know how could I tell if my amplifier is actually amplifiing the signal.

After small-signal analyses (AC analyses) if you notice that your amplifier has gain then it amplifies ;-)
Alternatively inject various frequencies in your inputs with small amplitude and notice the output after transient analyses (time-domain analyses).
