This original question has NOT been answered and is NOT a duplicate question so I am reasking it: Way to remove unwanted/unused wifi networks from Network Indicator Menu?
There should be a way to stop the Network Indicator menu from displaying completely unused/unwanted Wifi network entries in the dropdown.
On my indicator menu, there are more than a dozen networks displayed but I only ever connect to one. Why do I have to do deal with selecting from so many networks when I only ever connect to one? I should be able to configure Network Indicator to only display the one wifi network I connect to (the one wifi network that shows up in Network-Indicator > Edit Connections > Wifi).
How can I hide/remove the networks that I never use?
If any of the moderators bothered to read the original question and the so-called duplicate, they would understand they are not the same question. I am not asking about networks I have connected to. I am asking about the display of networks I have NEVER connected to. Networks I will NEVER connect to. I want to hide these networks from showing in the Network Indicator dropdown. The question this is supposed to be a duplicate of does not ask about this and none of the answers from that question even attempt an answer of what I am asking.
The comments from my original post of this question clearly delineate on how my question is NOT a duplicate.

That will not prevent Networkmanager from showing the networks in the list; it will only prevent reconnecting to them if there has ever been a connection. – Jos 21 hours ago
@Jos If they are within scan range, they will appear. If not, say, for example, a network he joined at the cyber cafe, they will be removed. – chili555 21 hours ago
As I understand it, there are more than a dozen networks within scan range, and OP doesn't want to see those. That is not the same as removing networks he has ever joined. – Jos 21 hours ago
Yes, Jos is correct. I have never connected to any of the shown networks. I will never connect to them. And yet they are always displayed. At a minimum it seems there should be a way to move them to the "More networks" folder/container. Most of the networks show up there. But why can't all unused networks show there? The dropdown menu should only display networks I can/want to connect to. – user308393 20 hours ago
