Airplane Mode
« on: February 18, 2021, 04:20:33 PM »
I note that my main Windows 10 computer has Airplane Mode ON. As this is a large home computer, not one I take anywhere, should I turn Airplane Mode Off?  Why? I note that when I click it, it says Network 3 connected, Wi-Fi turned off. ???

Hi Dick,
I would turn off Airplane mode on a desktop computer.
Here's what happens if you have it turned on

"Airplane Mode disables wireless communication on your PC, including Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS, and cellular data. This feature can be enabled through the taskbar icon in the Notifications section, a keyboard shortcut, the Network & Internet Settings, or a switch found on some computers."
