Solved!

Mobile hotspot not detected by laptop

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion 15
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My phone's hotspot gets detected by other phones, tablets, PCs etc.  Also my phone's hotspot gets detected in other operating systems (e.g. Ubuntu Live CD, Remix OS) on my HP laptop but not on windows 10 OS(which I prefer to use everyday). By the way hotspots from other mobile phones get detected without any problem on the my current problematic windows 10. Moreover this problem didn't exist just after a few days of fresh windows 10 installation.

PS:- My phone is Panasonic Eluga Ray 700.

I created this thread to report a possible fix for a previous thread which was closed.

 

So the problem is that the HP laptop is not scanning all possible channels. To fix this I changed my Wifi driver

After I changed the driver, I was able to get a new option in the Advanced tab of my network driver in Device Manager.

This new option - "Country Region (2.4GHz)" had a default value #0 (1 - 11). I changed it to #1 (1 - 13). And voila! My undetected hotspot appeared.
