Windows 10 - Switch Airplane Mode

 Windows 10 - Switch Airplane Mode

Most people enjoy working with their tablets or laptops during a long flight, and you can do so in Airplane mode in Windows 10. Portable devices are great for watching movies and playing games while pretending to catch up on some work. But most airlines alert you turn off your wireless connection while the plane is in flight, referred to in airport lingo as Airplane mode.

Follow these steps, to turn on Airplane mode: 
  1. Click or tap the Action Center icon, which is near the clock in the screen’s bottom-right corner. The Action Center pane appears.

2. The Action Center pane, normally, shows four buttons along its bottom edge; click or tap Expand that reveals a row of hidden additional buttons.

3. Now click or tap Airplane mode icon. When the button is highlighted, Airplane mode is on, which turns off your device’s radios – such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS.

To turn off Airplane mode and reconnect to the internet, repeat these steps. This time, however, you toggle off Airplane mode, which reactivates your Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS.

Airplane mode not only puts your tablet and laptop in compliance with airline safety rules, but it conserves battery life, as well. Feel free to keep your computer in Airplane mode even when you’re not on an airplane.

Airplane mode turns off not only your computer’s wireless but its cellular gear, as well, if you have a cellular data plan. It’s a handy way to shut off all your computer’s radio activity with one switch.
