On Windows® 10, you only need to install the Wi-Fi driver, not the whole Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software package. Starting with release version 20.120, a driver-only installation package is provided on Download Center.
Note Your system manufacturer may have pre-installed the DCH-Compliant Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software on your system to enable OEM-specific features. You should get the latest OEM-specific, DCH-compliant Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software from your computer manufacturer support.
You may lose OEM-specific features if you uninstall  DCH-compliant Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software.
