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.
