    jwoods,
    It would take quite a while to explain why this is needed, so I would rather not take time / space up here with that. Please just accept that this is a professional level significant need.

    Drag a shortcut to the desktop

    Edge worked per Fred's short method on my win 10. And so did some other apps - but ONLY if they were MS apps. None of the other listed apps worked this way.

    dogberry,

    Thanks Paul and wavy.
    What is the benefit of Autologon vs. just not having a password? I can see there may be some benefit in a multi user scenario, - perhaps forcing logon to an non admin account...
  18. To password or not to password - that is the question!

    Joe,
    Good question - but no. The 'backup' is actually built into the ISP supplied modem. I thought of switching them - making the modem / router the main net by putting the printers on there. But...

    Lockdown WiFi choices

    The problem is the lack of user control over which wifi net is connected to. The user comes in, and boots up a pc. Which net are they connected to? If both were live at boot, then the top one...
