    Starting with version 1709, in Option One, Step 1 a right-click on the network icon no longer says Open Network and Sharing Center. It now says Open Network Internet settings, taking you to the Settings app instead. There is a link to the Network and Sharing Center near the bottom of that Settings app page.
