Windows 10: Enable Wi-Fi manually always

    Enable Wi-Fi manually always

    Is it possible to keep Wi-Fi disabled default always by shutdown, even if I turned on when using, then shut down.
    I only want to enable Wi-Fi manually only when i need it on, when using.

    On Notebooks the Wi-Fi usually has a hardware method to switch it on or off, a switch or an Fn + another key to do it. Desktops may not have that feature but absent other software that controls the adapter it wouldn't be hard to use Device Manager to Disable it then Enable when desired. It would be difficult to have Desktop-type keyboards made for every situation possible while Notebook keyboards are pretty much specific to the device.

    Hi, you can try clicking the wifi icon in your taskbar > disconnect from wifi network > remove checkmark from "connect automatically". Reconnect manually at will to that network from now on. Does this to the job for you?
