Secure VPN in Windows10 Taskbar Not Autostarting
Although I do not need a solution, I admit it would be nice if it performed in the same manner as I was accustomed to the WiFi Privacy code. (I have not tried disabling fast startup as per a suggestion here, that was not necessary with WiFi Privacy.)
A secondary item, it seems that the new taskbar icon does not have an associated mouseover identifier although the image itself is pretty intuitive as to what it represents.
