    Ethernet connection question

    With Windows 7, There was a place to check if you wanted the computer to search for a
    Ethernt connection before connecting to wifi.

    I can't find that in W10, and am having difficulties getting the
    Ethernet connection to work. I am starting a new job and wireless is prohibited, but Ethernet is not working with 10.

    Is there such a place in W10 to do what I did in W7? If so, how do I get there?

    It is still in the same place as it has always been. Right Click on the Network Icon as it has been since XP.

    Nothing got moved. Only major change is that the System Settings panel is taking over in place of the Control Panel. It is for certain items at this time.
