FIX: Can’t access TCP/IPv4 properties on PPTP VPN connection

If none of the steps we’ve described above doesn’t seem to work, you can try creating a new VPN connection.

This doesn’t mean that you need to give up on using a PPTP VPN connection.

Just create a new one using the same credentials as your old VPN connection, and remove the previous, broken one.

After doing so, try accessing the TCP/IPv4 properties button on the new connection to check if everything is alright.

Reportedly, this method only works for VPN connections that don’t allow other people to use it.

Otherwise, you won’t be able to fix the TCP/IPv4 properties button not displayed by using the PowerShell method.


To wrap things up, if you can’t access TCP/IPv4 properties on a VPN connection on Windows 10, there are a few things you could do about it.

First and foremost, we advise you to download the latest updates, as it may be the best way to solve the issue.
