    This is probably really obvious, but I couldn't find it in the Network Centre in Control Panel.

    Ever since upgrading to Windows 10, my Surface defaults to my 2.4GHz network... this has issues so I want the 5GHz network to be the default. I know I could just 'forget' the 2.4GHz, but as the range is better, the 5GHz drops out sometimes and it's nice to have it reconnect automatically even if it isn't perfect!

    Help :)

    Heck. Mine won't automatically connect to any network unless I click the network icon on the taskbar then it appears to refresh the network list and connect to the best available connection without an issue. Not sure why I have to click the icon to make it connect.
