SQL SERVER Confisuration manager can't change TCP/IP option

I am trying to connect a JDBC connection to SQL Server, and uppon digging it appears that I need to enable the option "TCP/IP" in the "SQL Server Network Configuration" section of the program Sql Server Configuration Manager. What was unexpected to me was that the dropdown has no options for either enable or disable, it is just a blank dropdown and I can not enter my own text.

I have already tried running the config manager as admin, and it is a locally ran database so I should be the owner of the said database.
