Prioritising Wi-Fi networks on Mac

It's possible this has been discussed, but I couldn't find it when I tried to search. How do I change the priority of Wi-Fi networks in System Preferences on my Mac? I can't figure out how to move the different networks up and down in the table. Hope someone can help me with this. Thanks!


#1 Drag and Drop

The only way I have found to do this is by using drag and drop. I've succesfully moved networks around using the voiceover commands for drag and drop.

#2 I tried that, but I only got

I tried that, but I only got the message"couldn'r move...", or "the object is no longer visible". Could you please explain how you managed to do it?

#3 VO-Command-Shift-Space

I have never had much luck with the drag and drop commands, since they fail more often than they succeed. A better way to do drag and drop is to use VO-Command-Shift-Space, which performs a mouse down or mouse up event on whatever VoiceOver is focused on. This is essentially how a sighted user does drag and drop, and it works virtually every time.

I am not at my computer at the moment, so I can't test this right now, but I'm willing to bet this command will work for you.

#4 Actually it might not work

Actually it might not work this time. Here's why

The focus has issues getting to that table even if cursers are beeing followed. I normally rout nd then drag and drop. It worked when I reordered my wifi networks just a week ago.


Worked like a charm! Thanks a bunch! I've rearranged them just now.
