All Detected Networks Stuck on Connect Automatically
Several days ago I got a new router from Xfinity (Arris TG1782g). My brother noticed immediately on his laptop (running Win 7) that when he clicks the Internet Access icon in the Task Bar, every single detected network in the area has Connect Automatically checked. We live in a densely populated city and there are a LOT of detected networks. I noticed a few moments ago that my PC running Win 10 Pro also has very single Connect Automatically box checked. Most are secured networks but some are not. I can uncheck them all but they revert back to checked immediately. There is no option to 'forget' any of the networks listed and I can't find a setting to uncheck or remove them. I also cannot find a user manual anywhere online for the new router, nor can I find anything in the router's settings that covers my issue. I do not have this issue with my Apple and Android devices. It's only Windows.
Older PC games
I haven't been able to play C & C Generals since I switched to Windows 10 about 3 years ago. It loads from the CD just fine but when I click on the .exe file to start a game nothing happens. From what I've read on the internet there is some type of compatibility issue with Windows 10. I have tried at least a half dozen workarounds but nothing ever works. Very frustrating. Probably an easy fix for the Windows 10 programmers.
Movies & TV App
As a Microsoft Store associate, I see a few customers that come in with questions about the Movies & TV app. Out of curiosity, how do you usually access the Movies & TV app? Mostly on your Windows device or on your Xbox (if you have one)? What is your favorite feature of the app or least favorite?

"we don't have permission to get email for ...@aol.com"
I keep getting this message from Outlook, with directions to re-enter correct IMAP & SMTP info in settings. I've followed the recommended procedures with no result. I have updated in the AOL profile too to make sure IMAP & SMTP addresses are correct. This is the info: IMAP Incoming mail server (IMAP): imap.aol.com Outgoing mail server (SMTP): smtp.aol.com IMAP-993-SSL SMTP-465-SSL Do I need to just uninstall and re-install the account across all devices? I don't use AOL for all email, but it is handy for store promotions, etc. Thanks for any advice.
