Setting Wireless Network Priority - Windows 10

Alex Keller -

Windows 10 no longer includes a graphical method for prioritizing wireless networks, but you can still perform this operation from the command line:

Open CMD as an Administrator and follow these commands:


C:\Windows\system32>netsh wlan show profiles
Profiles on interface Wi-Fi:
User profiles
Current User Profile : Stanford Secure
All User Profile : Stanford
All User Profile : Stanford Visitor
All User Profile : eduroam
C:\Windows\system32>netsh wlan set profileorder name="Stanford Secure" interface="Wi-Fi" priority=1
Priority order of profile "Stanford Secure" is updated successfully.
