    Let TP-LINK Manage my Wireless and NOT windows?

    Is there a way to let TP LINK manage my wifi connection and NOT windows? I have the utility installed, but it is hidden and I don't need the wifi icon via windows any more. Can you change this?

    Since you have 3 adapters, each network adapter is assigned with a network name per Network Connections page.

    You need to remove the other 2 and rename the connection to whatever you want:

    You seemed to have edited your post. To manage with the TP-link utility, you must disable WLAN Autoconfig in Windows services then configure your utility to start the connection when you log-in

    Yeah, I edited, about 30 seconds after I posted, I figured out how to fix the naming. Didnt want to waste anyone's time.

    So if I disable the WLAN Autoconfig in Services, it won't mess anything up, as long as I start my other manager?

    Yes I think so since that's how it worked when I had 7 so it should be applicable to 10. The WiFi adapter should still be listed in device manager, but you must use the TP link manager to be able to see radios and connect to WiFi
