The error code hereI'm getting "Generic Failure" error when doing "Quick Create" and when I try to access the virtual switch in Windows 10 Hyper-V. Anyone have any suggestions? I've tried turning Programs features on and off, I've tried uninstalling the virtual switches, updates- I've probably did almost everything already.

Anyone has any suggestions?

You most likely do not have the Hyper-V Extensible Virtual Switch installed. If that is the case, you will have to install it, and then perform a reboot.
