    Yeah, there was a time when Wifi and Airplane worked in Notification & Action Center.

    MS decided that this belonged in the network Center. Press the network icon to show the same tiles - they work there.

    Do you have a physical on/off switch for your WiFi card. Turn the switch on and you should be able to turn off airplane mode.

    I am having this same issue. Airplane mode stays on, this disables the detection/display of WiFi/Bluetooth on a desktop machine.

    While I didn't write in about the issues in this thread, I just had this problem happen to my computer and I want to thank you VERY VERY MUCH for putting up the solution to the issue and also (of course, I don't believe you have control over this) thanks to someone, anyone, or noone for making it such a simple solution!

    Do you think this issue happened because someone hit Fn PrtScr by accident? I'd imagine that is a random and not an easy combo to hit, but not when you have a cat who's favorite thing in the world is to walk on my laptop when I'm working at peak proficiency which will happen ~3 to 4x per day and it just so happen that's about the amount of times he'll do his struttin'. And then once I step away from my computer for a minimum of 30 seconds, 50% of the time the cat will be using the laptop as his personal space heater.

    So, I'm thinking that this could have caused it? While I'm interested in the why?, it is fixed now and I got my thanks out and a little story that POSSIBLY created a few smiles so if I figure out a way, cool, but if not, its pretty low on my 'to do' list.
    Thanks again,
    Ryan
