Getting Rid of Network Adapter Sequential Numbering!
Hi. I have two Wi-Fi adapters on my Win10x64 PC - an internal and an external on the roof of my motorhome via USB.
The first is named "Wi-Fi" and the second "Wi-Fi 4", which drives me bananas.
In the registry I found two instances of "Wi-Fi 4" and changed them to "External Wi-Fi". The "classic" control panel displays for Network show this name. BUT, the modern gui still calls it "Wi-Fi 4", and I cannot find where this label is coming from.
Screen caps below showing the disparity.
Plz advise, thanks! /jim

I do not know of any way to hack the Modern UI app files. It would be difficult...
