Windows 10: Windows 10 WIFI settings tab missing on my desktop pc

    Windows 10 WIFI settings tab missing on my desktop pc


    Hello.
    I recently accepted an invitation to get free Windows 10. I was accepted and it seems to have installed just fine.

    Right after installation I poked around in it and found "Settings" where, among other things, I found settings to stop "WIFI Sense" from running. This feature sounds like nonsense to me.

    A week or so later I upgraded my wife's desktop to Windows 10, install worked. I decided to also turn off her "WIFI Sense" but I could not find the WIFI tab under "Settings", there is also no "Airplane" tab there.

    Going back to my computer to see where WIFI tab is, I see that my computer also no longer displays the WIFI or Airplane tabs.

    What is going on? M'soft playing with settings?

    Neither computer displays the WIFI tab.

    Is there no way to see that Wifi Sense is not going to operate on these two computers? We really don't need or want this feature.

    Thanks.

    Same here. Now you see it (when 10 installed); now you don't. What gives?

    It will do that if the drivers for the WIFI device is not installed.

    Thanks. Makes sense. But how did my WIFI drive change its installation status? Could this be due to installing a new router?

    It did that because you installed Windows 10. Even if you told it to keep files, app's, settings. 10 will still try to load the current drivers, just like 7 & 8 has done.

    The good thing is that Windows 8/8.1 drivers will work with Windows 10.
