Q: Adapter priority setting unavailable in Windows 10

Hi everyone. I recently upgraded to Windows 10 and I wish to change the order of priority of my network adapters in Windows 10 but I am unable to do so. Please tell me how I can change the order of priority of my network adapters in windows 10. Thank you 

Answer

A:

I have a work around for this.

1. Goto Control Panel > Network and Internet > Network Connections

2. Right click the desired connection (Higher Priority Connection)

3. Click Properties > Internet Protocol Version 4

4. Click Properties > Advanced

5. Uncheck 'Automatic Metric'

6. Enter 10 in 'Interface Metric'

7. Click OK

Repeat for the Lower Priority Connection, but this time put 20 into the 'Interface Metric'

You'll now use the higher priority connection as a default.
