Microsoft Wi-Fi Direct Virtual Adapter how to permanently remove adapters.

HP Recommended

Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Can anyone tell me if it is possible to remove Microsoft Wi-Fi Direct Virtual Adapter # 3 & # 4 from devices since I have never used any virtual app?
I've tried several ways, but can't find the solution.
Thank you

@alpha454, Welcome to the HP Support Community!


Let us try these steps:


On the Win PC, go to Settings > System > Projecting to this PC.

Under 'Windows PCs and phones can project to this PC when you say it's OK' > 

Select the drop box and select 'Always Off'.


Reboot the PC if required.


Hope this helps! Keep me posted.

It is all off by default, but despite this there are always Microsoft Wi-Fi Direct Virtual Adapter # 3 & # 4.

"this device does not use miracast reception, so you cannot wirelessly project it."
