Windows 8 – How to disconnect VPN connection

Ha ha ha… New OS released and we are now findings work arounds…

When you connect a VPN network through Windows 8, how to disconnect an incoming virtual private network (VPN) connection in Windows 8 / Windows Server 2012.

  • Open Network Connections. To do this, use either of the following methods:
    • Swipe in from the right edge of the screen, or point to the lower/upper-right corner of the screen, and then click Search. Then, type ncpa.cpl, and then click the Ncpa.cpl icon.
    • Another option is press Win+R to open the Run window, type ncpa.cpl,  and then  click OK.
  • Right-click the incoming VPN connection that you want to disconnect,  and then  click Status.
  • On the General tab,  click Disconnect.
  • Close Network Connections.

  1. isn’t it crazy that the Network Connections is no longer available from the Task Bar? Or that the same functionality from Network Connections can’t be found in the new interface? How intuitive is it to have to click the Search icon and type in ncpa.cpl every time. So glad I found this solution, but Microsoft needs to get their act together again.
