The Lack of a Refresh Button in Windows 10 Frustrates Way Too Many Users
Microsoft has substantially improved Windows 10 in these almost five years since its launch, but what the company hasn’t added is a refresh button in the Wi-Fi selection flyout.
In other words, whenever you attempt to connect to a Wi-Fi and click the network icon in the system tray to launch the said flyout, Windows 10 automatically scans for the available networks. After a short scan, it waits for input, meaning that you should just pick a network to connect to.
This flyout comes with an auto-refresh time, so it automatically re-scans for new networks at a pre-defined time. So why no refresh button that would allow users to restart the scanning faster without waiting?
This is the thing that’s apparently super-frustrating for so many users, so a request for a refresh button in the Wi-Fi selection screen went viral this week on reddit, with lots of users calling for Microsoft to just make it happen.
