    hide specific Network connection adapter from Network list


    Hi Mr @Brink ,

    Is there a way to hide specific "Network connection adapter" from the "Network" list in system tray (network icon list)?
    I have 3 network adapters, Ethernet,WiFi and Microsoft KM-Test Loopback adapter (name as KeyShot). Whenever I disable Ethernet and WiFi adapter, KeyShot adapter appears as an Unidentified network (SS below). I know I can hide it by disable the adapter, but I don't want to disable it because Keyshot app needs that network adapter to work on Win OS.

    I want the network list be shown as SS below (I want to hide just KeyShot adapter from the list):

    OS: Win 10 Enterprise x64, v2004 (B19041.423)

    A comment: I've on the latest Version 2004 and Control Panel does not show that item shown on your #17 post.

    What item?! The SS is about system tray network connection icon (adapters list):

    Thanks

    Let me say that (what I want) with a simple SS (below)! Just follow the numbers:

    1- My all adapters are enabled (3 network adapters)
    2- My current network list is (in system tray): Web (Ethernet), Unidentified network (Microsoft KM-Test adapter) and WiFi
    3- My desired list is this list (I want to remove Unidentified network from the list, without disabling any of the adapters)
