Windows 10: How to setup Incoming Connection?

    How to setup Incoming Connection?

    I recently upgraded to Win10 and one thing I had in in my Win 7 setup was a VPN in to my pc from work. I was able to setup an Incoming Connection in the Networking section of the control panel and bring up the file menu for a new Incoming Connection but under Win 10 I tried to do this but it wasn't there. Did anyone know how to do this?

    there is an option in the network settings screen to setup an incoming connection
    Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network Connections (you can just paste that into the explorer address bar)
    Click File in the upper left corner and right there is says "New Incoming Connection"

    I am sorry but my win 10 doesn't have that as far as I can tell. Yes, in win 7 but not win 10. Also, there isn't any "Network Connections" as I just tried the addressing you gave. Either I am being very dumb (highly possible) or my config is different from others in Win 10 but I don't see it. Thanks anyway

    yeah my address assumed you were in a certain area, sorry

    Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Network and Sharing Center
    then click 'change adapter settings' on the left.
    then click File and new incoming connection.
