    Change F hotkeys

    Hi! I installed Win10 some time ago, and I just installed the driver so I can disable Wi-Fi with the F key.
    When I do that, the OS goes into Air Plane mode, is there any way so I can make the F key to disable only Wi-Fi?

    Wi-Fi and Airplane Mode are interconnected and are part of FAA and airline regulations.
    What's airplane mode? - Windows Help

    It's the Fn key plus others that accomplish several functions, some before the Operating System loads.

    Hei Swinzon, velkommen til de Ti Forumene!

    Your system specs show you have a Pavilion series HP laptop. Basically the Airplane Mode is what you get when you use the function key to turn WiFi off; it does not only turn the WiFi but also Bluetooth off. Windows 8 / 8.1 / 10 Airplane Mode does the same, turns off all wireless communications.

    When you press the function button to turn Bluetooth and WiFi off Windows detects no more active wireless devices and to mark this it shows Airplane Mode being on.

    Nothing to worry, this is as it should be.
