    1. Files show the files which Apps download to the Device.
    2. Subsystem Screen reader helps accessibility wise, like screen reading on in Android apps you plan to run.
    3. Developer mode helps you to sideload an APK file manually using ADB. See .
    4. Resources: If the Subsystem is selected As needed, no resources are used in the Background, so as a result, apps open slowly. If a continuous option is selected, resources continue to be used in the Background, and Apps open quickly.

    Windows Subsystem for Android toggle Wireless Debugging fails

    The subject says it all. I'm trying to set up wireless debugging in order to work with the Windows Subsystem for Android. Can someone help me fix this?

    Here are the steps I'm taking:

    1. Install the Windows Subsystem for Android with Amazon Appstore (I've actually tried both installing the Appstore to get WSA and installing WSA to get the Appstore. At least 3 attempts with no success at this point.)
      1. Ensure Virtual Machine Platform is turned on.
      2. Ensure Windows hypervisor platform is turned on.
    2. Open Windows Subsystem for Android Settings
    3. Enable Developer Mode
    4. Select "Manage Developer Settings"
    5. I try two different things next with functionally the same result:
      1. Attempt to toggle "Wireless debugging"
      2. Click on the "Wireless debugging" text to go into the "Wireless debugging" submenu" and try to toggle "Wireless debugging" there.
    What happens:

    The toggle momentarily flashes to the on color and momentarily the toggles to the on position. Then the switch immediately switches back to the off position and off color. This is incredibly short. When first entering the wireless debugging submenu, the option will sometimes turn "on" just long enough to see a list of other pieces of information or options show up beneath it, but they quickly vanish. All other toggles in the developer settings work as intended. This is the only one that fails.

    What I expect to happen:

    I expect Wireless Debugging to be turned on and stay on so that I can use wireless debugging with the WSA.

    System Details:

    Windows Build 22000.1042

    AppStore 22207.1401.9.0

    16 GB RAM

    12th Gen Intel Core i7-1255U
