Windows Vista is one up than Windows XP. It simply works on all the functions within Windows XP and then expands on them, as a result the functions they offer are more useful to the average user. Not only does it improve on all existing functions in Windows XP, but it also brings a fair amount of new ones on to the table. Let us take the case of Internet Connectivity here. It is now much easier to set up and manage an internet connection in Windows Vista than it ever was on Windows XP. For some it is as simple as plugging in the network cable and turning on the Internet Explorer. However, to fully assert control your Internet Connectivity it is only appropriate that you are the granted the capability to remove old network connections if and whenever that you would want to remove them. Here are some instructions from Windows support to guide you along.
- Using your mouse, first click on the Start menu and then select the Control Panel.
- Select the “Network and Internet” button once the Control Panel loads and select the Network and Sharing Center.
- Click the “Manage network connections” tab.
- Look for the old network connections you wish to remove in the scroll box. Depending on how many connections you currently have in Windows Vista it is possible you will need to scroll a bit to find the one you wish to remove.
- Click on the old connection you wish to remove.
- Click the “Remove” button.
- Confirm your choice by pressing “Yes” when asked whether you are sure you wish to remove the connection. You may also elect to press “Cancel” or “No” to return you to the previous screen and prevent the connection’s removal.
- Remember the fact that you can also change network connections through the network wizard. Simply click Start, then “Connect To” and “Show all connections.”
- Select the network connection you wish to change by right clicking on it and selecting the option you wish. You can choose to “Disable” the connection, which would have roughly the same effect as completely removing it, rendering it inactive.
- Press the “Delete” key after clicking on a network connection in the Network Connection window. This will completely delete the connection in the same way that removing it from the Control Panel would.
Hope these steps from Windows support have helped you carry out the task at hand. Thank You.
