    Network sharing center missing in right click menu of network icon

    The question is clearly described in the Microsoft forums so I'll link it here. Basically, it is about getting back the "Network and Sharing" option in right click menu of the taskbar network icon instead of the new "Network and internet Settings" option which takes us to modern UI settings app which doesn't have most of the settings.

    Please help me to get the old option back!!

    Hi and Welcome!

    Microsoft is strongly moving towards the modern settings application in Windows 10. My advise to you is to begin to use it and get more comfortable in it.

    If you are hard set on using the older settings, some Network and Sharing tools can still be accessed in the Control Panel. Click the Start Menu and search for Control Panel.
