Wireless display adapter issues after Windows 10 update

As of now, there isn’t yet a working fix for this particular issue. However, if you’ve encountered it, here are some possible solutions that you could try out:

1. Check Device Manager to see if the wireless display adapter is activated

There are many other fixes that you could try out, and I strongly recommend you to check out our previous article where we covered most of them. Or you could also see Microsoft’s official guide on how do solve this.
