GUI for Multiple Network Cards & vSwitch Configuration?

I'm somewhat accustomed to how things are done in XenServer with regards to having multiple network interface cards. For example, I can see each one and name them while also seeing their MAC addresses all in a unified interface, as well as configuring virtual switches. Here's an example:

Pardon the way I'm posting my image, but the system says I'm too young of a forum member to post images / links: h t t p s : / /

What's the method to make such robust network configurations in Proxmox? Is there a graphical method I'm missing in Proxmox VE 5.3?

In my particular case with this new Proxmox system I have 4 network interface cards and a vSwitch to configure similarly as to the above XenCenter screenshot.

My plan is to map one physical network interface to Windows, one to a Linux system, and a virtual switch / private interface between these two guests / virtual machines. Further I may also have another wireless device and another network interface mapped to Windows as well.

yes there is a GUI network manager.
Navigate to Node level and there you see under System tab the Network section.
