    Information Whether it's for work or personal use, you can connect to a VPN (virtual private network) on your Windows 10 PC. A VPN connection can help provide a more secure connection to your network and the Internet.

    A virtual private network (VPN) allows you to connect to the internet via a server run by a VPN provider. A VPN extends a private network across a public network, and enables users to send and receive data across shared or public networks as if their computing devices were directly connected to the private network. ("In the simplest terms, it creates a secure, encrypted connection, which can be thought of as a tunnel, between your computer and a server operated by the VPN service." Applications running across the VPN may therefore benefit from the functionality, security, and management of the private network.

    For more information about a VPN, see:
    This tutorial will show you different ways on how to disconnect a VPN (virtual private network) connection in Windows 10.

    Silent VPN Disconnection

    Hi Gary,

    The issue you're experiencing with getting a notification whenever the VPN disconnects might be due to misconfiguration of your notification settings. That being said, we'll need more information to properly address your concern. Please answer the following
    questions:

    • Which VPN app are you using? Are you using the built-in VPN in Windows 10?
    • Are you getting a notification before whenever the VPN is disconnected?
    • What is the OS Build of your Windows 10 device? Click the
      Start button, type About your PC, press
      Enter, and then scroll down to
      Windows specifications to find this information.

    For now, we advise reviewing the notification settings of your PC. Follow the steps outlined in this

    article
    on how to access the notification settings.

    We'll be waiting for your response.

  6. Windows 10: How to Show VPN on Wi-Fi list (like Win 8 & 8.1)

    In Windows 8.0 and 8.1, VPN connections showed up when you clicked the Wi-Fi connection icon

    Disconnect VPN in Windows 10 d6586ce3-f3c6-4030-b628-2c4f6b7d0032.jpg
    on the task bar and offered connect/disconnect directly from that context menu (A total of 3 clicks.)

    In Windows 10, multiple steps are required to first access your existing VPN connections (5 clicks):

    • click the
      Disconnect VPN in Windows 10 350d2a4c-861f-462d-a65b-6b841db8a512.jpg
      icon
    • click Network Settings
    • click VPN
    • click your connection
    • click Connect.
    This seems to add it to the menu but has to be repeated for each connection. Now, once it's there, connecting/disconnecting is still a multi-step process vs. the 2 steps it took in previous versions:

    • click the Wi-Fi icon
    • click the VPN connection (Network Center launches)
    • click the VPN connection again, this time in the Network Center
    • click Connect or Disconnect
    Is it possible to configure Windows 10 in such a way as to minimize these steps?
