    I think that it is possible to Set Service Order in the Network part of System Settings. This get shown in a menu if the ...> button is clicked on the window. Maybe this is just for connection types rather than a choice of wi-fi possibilities.

    Eric: Right, for connection types, not which Wi-Fi network is preferred over another.

    Thanks as usual Gary. Somewhat related topic, given iCloud, is there still a need/use for creating a shared network to allow other family users to access files on my computer, and vice-versa? I remember doing this years ago using the Network in the Finder side bar, and turning on the Share feature. I have one item showing within the Network folder in Finder, and I'm not even sure what it is. Thx

    Nick: I certainly find myself dealing with sharing files locally much less than before. iCloud for myself and AIrDrop between two people seems to cover so many uses cases previously covered by old-fashioned "file sharing."

    Gary, thanks a lot for the great video! Just one point...I have older macOS (Monterey) and I can see "Limit IP address Tracking" option available for me. And, so it seems its just normal feature as I don't have any iCloud+ subscription etc. I am not sure if I am right for newer macOS too (Ventura) which I hope it shouldn't become suddenly premium feature which was already freely available.

    John: This is a per-network switch for Private Relay. If you don't have Private Relay, it wouldn't be on for anything, but you can still control the switch so if you do turn it on in the future then it will work or not work for that network. See https://support.apple.com//HT212614
