You shouldn't have to "select" to apply a gradient to the whole image.
This should work just fine without number 2 also.

Play with all of the options in the gradient tool options box, use undo
and try something else.  And drag the mouse in different directions and
different starting points -- using all of the different options.
Gradients are fun.

Selection is very good when you need to fill smaller areas and shaped
areas with gradients.  But it is quicker to just slap the gradient onto
the whole image, if that is what you want.
