Current Windows 10 partner build adds quick access to Wi-Fi network selections

If you were unhappy about the way Windows 10 threw the Wi-Fi network options deep into the new Settings app, this next bit of news is about to make you very happy again.

In Windows 8.1, selecting a Wi-Fi network to connect to was as easy as a tap on the network icon on the taskbar, then a click on the network you want to connect to. Dead simple. But with the latest Windows 10 Technical Preview build, it’s not as easy. Clicking on the network icon would tear you away from whatever you were doing and place you in the new Settings app to choose a network, it’s a jarring, frustrating experience to accomplish a basic task, but Microsoft is listening.

In an undetermined partner build of the Technical Preview, Microsoft has added the ability to select a network from a new flyout menu. The new menu seemingly appears upon clicking the network icon on the taskbar, while it looks similar to the Action Center, the menu doesn’t appear to be part of it. Check out the screenshot below to see what it looks like.
