    No "General" tab in router properties in File Explorer's "Network"


    So, there's a location in File Explorer on Windows 10 you can go to called "Network." In this place, you can go to your router properties, and change some settings. Originally, a "General" tab was appearing in these router properties, and you could change some "settings" by clicking a button on that tab, and basically with the settings window that would appear, you could map ports/port forward. However, for some reason, (and I don't know what I did...) this "General" tab is no longer appearing in router properties. All I think I did was open up router properties and close it once, and i don't know, it's just gone, all I see is some router info in a "Network Device" tab.

    The general tab normally looked like this: https://youtu.be/Resk2OtX_qs?t=41

    So, what can I do to get this general tab back? I don't understand why it's gone.

    You do not get your router properties in the Network devices that show up in Explorer. It is just Windows pulling UPNP info for you to be able to click on the Icon and open up the browser, so that you can log into the device. Not all network devices can be accessed when shown in Explorer.

    There is nothing wrong with Windows. If you want to go to a Network share, then you need to map it.

    A network share (ie folder on a NAS or another computer).
