Wi-Fi turns off when 'connected' with Ethernet

HP Recommended
850 G3
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My Wifi disables when Ethernet cable is connected.  I tried all of these but none worked:

Check BIOS - LAN/WLAN switching is disabled 


 - All HP programs from Add Remove programs

 - All Intel Wifi related programs from Add Remove programs

 - Removed Wifi AC 8260 Intel driver and allowed older Microsoft drive

 Stop these services:

 - HP LanWlanWwanSwitchingServiceUWP

 - LanWlanWwanSwitchingServiceUWP

My solution paraphrased from:


Delete / Rename Network Connections In Windows 8 [10]

Remove the connections in Windows 8 [10] using the registry editor.

1- To open the registry editor press the Windows + R keys to open the Run dialog, type regedit, and press Enter. If prompted by UAC, then click on Yes.
2- Go to this folder: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\NetworkList\Profiles.
3- The Profiles folder will provide a list of all the network locations (past or recent) that you have used. Each network location is represented by a subfolder.
4- Delete all the connections simply delete all of the sub-folders within the Profiles folder.
