If your PC keeps connecting to the wrong Wi-Fi network automatically, in this guide, we’ll show you the steps to change their priority to always try to connect to the preferred network first. On Windows 10, when the Wi-Fi adapter is enabled on your device, it’ll connect to only one particular network automatically, even if you have multiple connections saved on your computer, and those networks are in range.

How to enable NTFS support to treat folders as case sensitive on Windows 10

This is a great tip to enable features for handling sensitive files!  Check out other Windows 10 tips also.

Windows 10 now handles case sensitive files, just like Linux, and here are the steps to enable the features. Although you can now run a number of Linux distros natively on Windows 10, this integration has been a little tricky when it comes to handling filename case, as Linux is case sensitive and Windows is not. In order to overcome this limitation, starting with the Windows 10 April 2018 Update (version 1803), NTFS includes a new flag that you can enable on a per-folder basis allowing the file system to treat files and folders as case sensitive. Using this new flag, you can not only handle case sensitive files while using a Linux console but more importantly, it also allows Windows applications (such as Word and Notepad) to open files correctly if they’re only different by case.

How to access XPS Viewer in the Windows 10 April 2018 Update

If you’re running the Windows 10 April 2018 Update, this is how you can get back support for XPS files. XPS is a file format that Microsoft created to print content to a file very similar to PDF. It was originally introduced with Windows Vista, and even though it never really gained popularity it continued to ship with Windows 7, Windows 8.1, and Windows 10. Now, starting with the April 2018 Update (version 1803), Microsoft is finally retiring support for the file format and removing the XPS Viewer app on new installations. This means that if you’re doing an in-place upgrade from version 1709 (Fall Creators Update) to version 1803, you’ll continue to have support for the format, but if you’re setting up a new device, or do a clean installation, the XPS Viewer app will no longer be available. If you’re among those people who still use XPS files, and you can no longer find the app, you can get the XPS Viewer back using the Settings app. How to access XPS Viewer in the Windows 10 April 2018 Update
