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?

To add to this, do you have any other devices connected via USB other than keyboard/mouse?

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 ?
