Network Connections in Windows 10

Windows 10 can be great, but a lot of things have been dumb since Windows 8. Like how they hide access to Network Connections. The window that on WinXP and Win7, was used for all things network related. All it’s functionality is still there, you just have to find it.

There are several ways to get to the now buried window, but with this method you can reach in two clicks.

  1. Right click the Start Menu and select Network Connections. Done? Ha, no. Welcome to the Network Status setting window. Hardly.
  2. Now click “Change adapter options”.¬† You made it~! This is the “real” Network Connections window.

For the uninitiated, this window shows the network status better than the previous Win10 Network Status window. Right click your adapter and select status to gander at all the info.
