According to the leaked Windows 8 Build 7955, the Windows vNext operating system will allow users to easily remove wireless connection profiles by right clicking them in the Network Menu that pops up on the Taskbar and selecting a new option introduced.
However, whether real or fake, the new option does point to the fact that network connections management in Windows 8 needs to evolve, especially around wireless connections.
The administration of connections, especially of wireless networks should be simplified in Windows 8.
Smartphone users today undoubtedly have a long list of wireless connections that their devices remember from all the WiFi spots they connected to.
Windows 8 offers Microsoft the possibility to provide an operating system that will be smarter than mobile platforms today when it comes down to managing wireless connections, including allowing customers to remove networks that they know they no longer use as simply as possible, and preferably without having to dig half way through the Control Panel.
