Mesh to curves Issue

Hello all, I’m doing a cable, I created this one (the basic shape) from a vertice extruded.

But I do have a problem, It’s the fact I don’t have handles such as a bezier curves would have, I’ve however did ALT + C to convert this “mesh” as a curve.

No handles appears, I looked around in the interfaces, I try to select vertices and see if there was something that could help in the options but found nothing, could you help me please ?

The solution is probably stupid though.

Here a paint over to show what I mean

In the menu to the Left, there’s a button “Set Spline Type” that will give you the choice between “Poly”, “Bezier” or “NURBS”
Set it to Bezier and you should see the handles appear.
