Windows 10: "show available networks" & "manage known networks" disappeared

    "show available networks" & "manage known networks" disappeared


    hi! all,

    under "wireless network connection" settings, there are "show available networks" & "manage known networks" options that can be clicked. however, when I tried to click on either option, nothing happens. if I tried to click on the wifi icon on lower right hand corner of the task bar, I could not see available wireless network window either.

    the only way that I can attach to a new wireless network is at the login page and click on the wifi icon, then the available wireless networks window will show up.

    please help!

    Thanx!

    Just roll back to a restore point before this happened. This usually happens when a user changes Services or installs software for managing Wireless connections, which stops Windows Wireless Zero Config.
