Reset Credentials missing

I’m using Docker for Windows (19.03.5) with Linux containers. I want to create a volume that is mapped to my windows file system. I have followed this link to create volumes and also tried creating using -v.

I have read the documentation here which states: “File sharing permissions are tied to the credentials you provide here. If you run docker commands under a different username than the one configured here, your containers cannot access the mounted volumes.”

The problem I have is that there are no options to reset credentials. I have seen screen shots that show a link at the bottom of the Resources/File Sharing page. Mine does not reflect this.

Does anyone else have this issue? Has anyone else successfully mounted a volume from the windows file system to a linux container?

Thanks for your help, I’m fairly new to docker!
