    How do I Disable Access to Airplane Mode Settings


    I have done days of googling trying to find a way to lock down users from tampering with network settings on Windows 10 Panasonic tablets with no avail.

    I have over 500 devices and need to find a way to lock down all three of these settings.

    Airplane Mode - Permanently Off

    Cellular and WiFi - Permanently On

    I've checked GPO's and can't find anything relating to the options I need. Same for registry key entries.

    Also I want to note, I'm not trying to hide these settings using the "SettingsPageVisibility" reg key, I'm looking to grey them out so they can not be changed.

    Appreciate any help!

    Hi, via services.msc, find
    Radio Management Service
    and disable it, then restart.

    (Normal startup is manual; you can't simply stop it).

    There is then nothing shown under Wirelss Devices.

    The Action Centre tile is greyed out and unresponsive.

    Hope that helps.

    Thank you dalchina,

    This works works great for the Airplane mode option, but users can still enable/disable the WiFi and Cellular connection from the Quick actions panel.

    Odd- that's not what I found.. the tile was non-responsive.
    Should add that's with this laptop using Wifi, build 1903 latest as per my specs.
