    Where is the Wireless Network Properties window from W7?


    Hi,

    I've had real trouble locating this particular window in Windows 10. The only way I can get to it is if I create a manual entry for a wireless network. In Windows 7 you used to be able to get to it for existing wireless networks that I had previously connected to. Does anyone have any idea how to get to it? Many thanks

    I know how to view a list of previously connected networks, but if I want to edit the settings of that SSID, I have to delete it and re-create it manually. Whereas on W7 it was easily accessible in the window that I posted.

    To change the SSID it's done in the router setup page.

    Look at the screenshots below will show you how to get to that same window.

    It is still in the adapter icon in the task area as it has always been since XP. You can also pull it up in the Control Panel.

    I'm not seeing this as the same as W7. The last screenshot above will only allow you to change the properties of a network you're already connected to, not the same as the W7 functionality.
