SX700 Will Not Connect in Windows 10

I had no issues with Windows 7, but bought a new Dell laptop and it will not connect with W10.  I have no issues connecting to my Samsung Galaxy S7.  Here is what happens with laptop.  Camera finds Laptop, I click on "laptop" and it says "connecting" indefinitely.  I go to "network" on laptop which sees the SX710, but when I click on the camera icon, it tries to go to an IP address.  If I right click it wants to know if I want to go to the Canon webpage or see properties and those are the only options.  I am stumped.   And I find many others having connection issues in Windows 10 as well.  So, I'm guessing it's a Windows 10 problem?????
