Hi William

What version of Windows are you using?

I happen to be using a Home version of Windows Ten.
touch the WindowsKey, now type, Wi-Fi.
you should hear, wifi system settings, press enter.
focus lands on the wifi button, JAWS reports the status as on, on my machine.
I use the tab key twice to find, show available networks, press enter.
Focus should land on the connected network. in my case JAWS now announces, TinyHats Connected, secured , secured, signal 4 out of four bars.
Now use, Shift+F10, or the applications Key. JAWS probably says disconnect.
Use up or down arrowKeys to find the, forget, option, now press enter.
Use the, Shift+Tab, to find the WIFI button again and use space bar to deactivate WIFI, or do.
Use Alt+F4 to close the window and repeat step one, and use space bar to deactivate WIFI.
With the ethernet plugged in restart your machine.

You should see a list of networks if you click connect to a network.
You should be able to move to the network and right click to choose forget on your wifi connection.

At the very begining of setting up my Win10, I have connected to my home wifi.

Later, I have connected my pc to Ethernet cable.

But now, even I have manually turn off the wifi button in setting, I can still see the wifi ssid in the system bar icon.

so, how can I make win 10 connect to Ethernet instead of wifi?

and how can i forget the wifi connection?
