VPN and DialUp connections showing above WiFi Windows 8.1


#1
Hi Everyone,

I am new to the forum, just signed up. Have a question to ask but will also hang around and contribute where I can.

Basically I am running Windows 8.1 x64 on my Toshiba work latop. In my job I literally have hundreds of VPN and Dial Up connections that I use regularly to allow me remote access to various systems. With the Windows 8 'Networks' panel that slides in from the right when you click on the network icon in the system tray, all of my VPN's and Dial Up connections are listed above any available wireless networks.

Whilst this does not affect my ability to connect to the networks, it is a pain having to scroll to the bottom of the list when I am out on site and using a touch pad.

I was wondering if anyone was aware of anything that could allow me to display wireless networks (WiFi) above VPN's and Dial Up networks (Connections). Maybe a registry tweak or similar.

I will attach a screenshot of the Panel for clarification. I have re-installed windows this week due to an unrelated issue, hence why there is only ten or so of the hundreds of connections I use visible.

Thanks in advance for any Help and Advice!
