    Where to look at "properties" for network connections?

    When in windows 8.1 and I look at the wireless connections, there is no option to right click and choose "properties" to where you could see the password if need be, etc. Is this no longer an option in windows 8.1? Is there another place to see these settings as they are in widows 7?

    click network and sharing
    click change adapter settings

How to get to "Properties" of a shortcut in Win8
Very strange! I should like to have always my program windows in Maximized form. But I'm afraid there is not a setting in Win8 to get this done (Anybody?) Okay, then I handle the programs seperately!
