Missing options in the Settings menu


(Abukres) #1

I am running Docker 18.06. My Settings menu is showing only 4 options: General, Proxies, Daemon and Reset. I saw images of the Settings menu online and are there more options which are not showing for me like Shared Drives and Advanced.

Why am I not seeing the rest of the options?

I have the same question

Same question. Docker for Windows docs appear to be way out of date.

You have to use Linux type container to see these options. Lots of documentations mention Docker and it seems they are assuming you’re using Linux type of container. It’s confusing for beginners.

I have the same issue. But when I switch to Linux containers, Docker restarts and I get the error dialog:

Unable to start: The running command stopped because the preference variable “ErrorActionPreference” or common parameter is set to Stop: ‘MobyLinuxVM’ failed to start. (Virtual machine ID E09206B4-5FBB-427E-957C-498BDDCD5BCA)

Any guidance is very much appreciated!
