How Do I get my sharing tab back!!

So I',trying to connect my xbox to my laptop which I have been able to do before. So I go to network and sharing center then I go to change adapter settings then I do what ever other sites have told me and right click on local area or wireless network connection and then click on properties. So I get here and all I see is networking but no sharing. How do I get my sharing tab back?

If you open the network and sharing center.
1. Right click on the monitor on the bottom right of your screen.
2. Click open network and sharing center.
3. Then in the left side of the windows top left click on "Change advanced sharing setting's."

Is this what you are looking for?

no my sharing tab is missing when I go to change adapter settings then I right click on wireless netowrk connection and I click on properties. It only shows Networking, It should show both Networking and Sharing.

Well are you trying to share a folder, or what exactly are you sharing?

I'm trying to connect my xbox to my laptop and this requires me to go to the sharing tab which is not there. I right click my local area connection and then click on propeties and there is no sharing tab, just networking.
