Windows 10: Reorder WiFi networks

    Reorder WiFi networks

    I just got a Lenovo Yoga 14 with Win 10 preinstalled. I set up the WiFi for my home network and then added Xfinity WiFi hot spot so I can use the computer on my jobsite (Construction site that doesn't have its own internet connection). A Xfinity hot spot is also available around my home and every time I restart this Win 10 notebook it connects to the Xfinity hot spot instead of my Home router. I have unchecked the Connect Auto check box for Xfinity but it still wants to connect to that hot spot first.

    How do I reorder the list of WiFi connections so it goes to my home network first, If Available?

    I've search Google and this forum and found nothing. Maybe my search terms are correct?

    Hello Edwar, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    If you like, you can use OPTION TWO in the tutorial below to change the connection priority order for wireless networks.

    Thanks Brink. I had found that tutorial in a search but wasn't sure it would work in Win 10.

    You're most welcome. Yep, luckily it's the same in Windows 10. :)
