Cannot delete network switch devices after removing Hyper-V

Due to complicated network environment reasons with my ThinkPad T480, I've had to remove Hyper-V from my Windows 10 Pro. I subsequently noticed that remnants of the virtualised switches remain in my Network Connections device list.
The switch devices cannot be deleted (greyed out). What other clean-up steps must be performed to allow deleting those unused switches?

Hi,

Thanks for posting in our forum!

Try to go device manager, click network adapters, right click and uninstall.

It does not work this way, when the host machine rebooted, this ethernet adapter will recreate again.
The most boring is it will reset the custom settings on this adapter.
