Hello,

by default the max device can connect is 8 in Windows 10 Mobile Hotspot.

You can look for the option to add a Dword value named WifiMaxPeers to

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\icssvc\Settings

it will change what the upper limit shows in Mobile Hotspot, e.g. However, I can't guarantee that Windows isn't hardcoded to ignore the decrease.
