How I fixed broken WiFi after upgrading to Windows 10 - and it wasn't a VPN issue

I just upgraded another laptop from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10.
I kicked it off overnight and all looked good in the morning. Until, that is, I tried to access the internet.
Everything was ok with the routers and I could connect to multiple networks from other machines but none would work on the newly updated machine.

Searching the internet I found many other reports of a similar issue and most seem to be due to a problem with old VPN software.

This wasn't my situation.
Eventually I found this solution:

Go to: Control Panel > Device Manager > Network Adapters > Select WiFi adapter > Advanced Tab > Roaming Aggressiveness > change to highest.

 This worked for me but YMMV.

This worked for me too:
