If I buy a laptop that is wifi enabled will it automatically connect to my home network? If not, what will I have to do to make that happen? Thank you, KLJ

It probably will once you have your security settings in place. If you are running encryption, it shows a signal being received and you cannot connect, then make sure the password is correct. The same level of encryption and the same password is required in normal situations. Ben

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
