Hello, ...I don't think I'm understanding how the 'Coordinate Conversion' tool works; doesn't seem very intuitive. See below. So, I used the 'Map Point Tool' to click on a point. In the 'Enter a coordinate' box/List of coordinates box' -- where is it getting this coordinate system info? This is a New blank Map set to WGS84 Web Mercator auxiliary sphere. My Map Display coordinates are in Decimal Degrees.

Even so, I don't know what to do next in order to convert it to something else?

...The Help Doc didn't help, so any assistance is appreciated 😉 Thanks!

The enter a coordinate display can be changed by pressing the bulleted list looking icon to the right and selecting a new display.

To convert your coordinates:

Click the XY+ Icon.

Then choose the output coordinate.

Thank you Jen, but my question was "what coordinate system is it defaulting to when all I have is a new blank Map?

I'm confused because my Map Display units are Degrees and the Coordinate Conversion units are definitely not.
