    missing menu commands

    Most of the times I'm getting help there are instructions for going through menus, (click something then right-click on another item) and so on. Many times I follow through then something I'm told to click ISN'T there in the menu. Why are these items missing and how can I restore them? I'm on as Administrator so shouldn't the menus be complete?

    Hello Chuck, :)

    This last one was trying to get my IP address. I went to network connections and was said to click advanced options. It wasn't there. I checked the other menus but was nowhere.

    Thanks, but...

    Thanks. I got the IP but I still would like to find out why menu items aren't where they're supposed to be.

    In that example, there wasn't an "Advanced options" mentioned to click on, so I'm not sure anything was missing.

    I suppose that the instructions you were following may have been out of date.

    Do you have any other examples we can help with?
