USB Tethering creating new names each time.

How to stop Windows 10 Home from creating a new network name each time when connecting Laptop using Androids USB Tethering Option?


I have the same problem. And it seems to be a universal one. Stack Exchange has a solution:

The only downside is that the network icon in the notification area doesn't work properly. Is there a way to stop adding new names AND make the network icon work?

Regarding your questions:

  • Windows 10 is updated
  • drivers are updated
  • This issue always occured. (started using usb tethering one week ago)
