    change wifi password

    Hi Barbara,

    A wireless router's password can be changed through the router's configuration webpage. Follow these steps to change it:

    • Click Start.
    • Go to Settings.
    • Click Network & Internet.
    • Click Wi-Fi.
    • Select your Wi-Fi network and look for the IPv4 address. Routers commonly use 192.168.1.1, but it depends on your router, so it's important to check.
    • Launch a web browser like Microsoft Edge and type the IP address in the address bar.
    • You'll be prompted for a username and a password. The most common default username is
      admin and the most common default password is password, or there may not be a password at all and you can leave it blank. If this doesn't work, consult the manual for your router or contact the device manufacturer.
    • Once you're successfully logged in, find the wireless settings area and change the password.

    Let us know if you were able to change the Wi-Fi password after following these steps.

    Enlarge list of Most Used or add manually

    It was so convenient have manually added and recently used programs, all showing latest fiels or config used.

    Now this is reduced to 5 moste used, far not enough, especially as tile didn't show recent files.

    Of course pin to taskbar would do the job, but this list can get far to long when there are many open apps.

    How can list of 'Most used' apps enlarged to 10?

    Thanks for directions.
