Did you install the latest Windows 10 driver from the adapter manufacturer's web site?

Please list "all the possible solutions that are available on youtube" so that we do not repeat them.

A detailed description of your USB2 802.11n wireless adapter would be helpful.
Because it is old technology, it may not support being used in Windows 10.

What is the brand name and model name and model number of your desktop?
Does it have both USB2 and USB3 ports?

Connect that USB wireless adapter to your computer.
Go into the Device Manager, then expand the "Network Adapters" heading.
Submit an image of the devices in the "Network Adapters" heading so we can see what the name of the wireless device is.
Double-click that wireless device so its properties window can load.
Click the "Driver" tab.
Submit an image of that window so we can see what the driver version and date is.
Click the "Details" tab.
Click "Hardware Ids" in the drop-down list.
Submit an image of that window so we can see what the vendor and device codes are.

Note: Make sure the images are not too small and are not blurry.

To add to the previous post's requests, are you running Windows 10 as host to a Linux VM ?

If you are do you want to use the wireless Usb adaptor in the Windows host AND the Linux VM ?

Typically if you see that error it's due to the device. Have you returned it for an exchange to ensure it's not the adapter?

Please confirm the information that Frank has asked you.

As a side bit:

Kali Linux is a distribution (toolkit) that was developed for and intended for use by professional penetration testers and security specialists. Penetration and security testing involves using "ethical" or "white-hat" hacking but unfortunately the same tools can be used by "unethical" or "black-hat" hackers for nefarious purposes. Therefore, due to the nature of the Kali Linux distribution, we have decided not to provide technical support for anyone using it here, however, we can refer you to the Kali support forums that can help configure the devices within Kali once we can confirm the wireless device is working in Windows.

I found nothing conclusive by searching the web, but that adapter seems to be a piece of junk especially when somebody tries to use it with Windows 10. I don't say this often, but you'd probably be better off cutting your losses and buying a supported and better adapter.

Your first image shows it as being a Realtek RTL8188FTV USB2 802.11n wireless adapter.
Your second image shows it using driver version 1030.6.1201.2015 which is 6+ years out of date.
Your third image does not provide the "Details - Hardware Ids" window that I requested.

That wireless adapter is old technology USB2 802.11n and is not designed to be used with Windows 10.
I did some research and found several complaints about it not working properly with Windows 10.

Terry gave you some good advice.
You should buy a newer technology USB3 802.11ac wireless adapter.

No. You have been given a couple of reasons why (outdated device that appears to have problems reported as well as not supported by Windows 10; possible lemon device) so as stated cut your losses (if you can get a refund, do so) and get a more modern device.

Some people updated the driver to a 2017 or 2018 version, and that wireless adapter still did not work properly in Windows 10.
You really have no choice but to buy a newer technology wireless adapter which works in Windows 10.

This is the USB3 802.11ac wireless adapter that I use - which can be used with or without its extender cable and cradle.
