How do I turn off the "Networks" popup? RRS feed

  • Question

  • It would seem I'm not meeting my quota of mouse clicks each day so MS has decided to help me get a few more.

    Having to go through Network and Sharing Center to open the Network Connections page was my least favorite thing about post-XP windows but now I have to use this thing as well? It's another 2 clicks and an annoying popup bar thing, it does nothing more than slow me down. When I'm in and out of this thing adding, connecting and modifying networks all the time it really gets on my wick!

    It wouldn't be so bad if I could modify networks from it but I can't. I also can't see how I can navigate to it without going through Network Connections first. Again, it's just an extra layer which adds nothing to my experience. How do I turn it off!??!

    Thanks :)

  • Hi,

    Did you mean you want to disable the above UI?

    If yes, based on my test, it's not possible.

    If I misunderstand, please correct us.
