    New network profile every USB hotspot connection

    Hi!
    I use to connect my PC to my smartphone via USB cable thus I'm able to use USB tethering hotspot.
    But everytime I connect my PC to my smartphone, a new network connection profile (Network 1, Network 2 and so on...) will be created in
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\NetworkList\Profiles

    Is it safe to delete those profiles? Is there any way to use the same Network number?

    Thanks!

  3. USB Tethering creating new names each time.

    Hi,

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

    Prevent Windows From Creating New Network Names when Tethering with Android

    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)

    Regards

    Usb tethering of android phone creates new network location.

    Every time i reconnect my android phone to my pc via usb tether it creates a new network location even though the device has not changed. is there a way to configure my pc so that it recognises this device each time it is connected without having to create
    a new network location?.
