    Probably there is a wireless switch driver/utility you should install to toggle the wi-fi on or off. Have a look at the manufacturer's site. Or it may be a Quick Launcher (or similar) utility controlling all the hotkeys. Make sure you install that as well.

    Nope. I've installed everything from the hp website available for my laptop. Even with widows update. But no luck. :'(

    Updates are bullsh*t. They don't help. I'm really upset about what microsoft's doing. If they keep messing up things like these then very soon their reputation will be replaced and people will start using alternatives. Ubuntu for example. Manufacturer's are doing that. Dell for example.

    Manufacturers install Ubuntu to sell their computers cheaper (Windows costs about 100$ on the purchase price), not because they like it! See here for many Linux problems and why the average computer user should avoid it. Linux is reserved for those willing to spend enough time solving the issues and experimenting. For all of us just wanting to do our job STAY CLEAR! My advice!

    W10 Airplane Mode UI error


    razrh said: View Post
    Hello.

    I am using hp 14-r029tx and windows 10 pro. The problem is, I have my wifi on. But the airplane mode status shows activated which means airplane mode is on. If my wifi is on then how come airplane mode is also on? attaching a screenshot. Sometimes wifi takes too much time to load and sometimes have to reboot also. my wifi adapter is QUALCOMM Atheros qca 9565 with Bluetooth.
    Found this today in list of known W10 issues:
    "After logging into your PC, you may hit a UI issue in which Airplane Mode will incorrectly show as “on” even though your PC’s Wi-Fi is powered on (the UI essentially does not wait long enough for the device’s physical radios to power on before reporting the current state), but you can just toggle Airplane Mode as a workaround".
    So I just toggle Bluetooth on/off which clears the Airplane Mode indicator.

ID:	68204Anyone had this problem? Here is a work around for the airplane and blue tooth button problem. This removes the buttons from the action center.
    This solution, from another user, has worked for me:
    "Open regedit and go to the entry

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ActionCenter\Quick Actions\All\SystemSettings_Radio_IsAirplaneModeEnabled

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ActionCenter\Quick Actions\All\SystemSettings_Device_BluetoothQuickAction


    change the value of "type" from 0 to 1

    The default should be
    "Type"=dword:00000000

    change it to

    "Type"=dword:00000001


    and reboot to apply the registry change


    Note: I don't have any Bt devices at all on this computer, and I have no idea what this "type" entry does other than it fixed the "Bluetooth" icon being displayed as ON without any BT device on my system. Backup the registry entry/key before editing your registry."


    Worked for me!

    Thank you mperra! Change the type value of SystemSettings_Radio_IsAirplaneModeEnabled gets rid of this annoying icon.

    Microsoft apparently lacks quality control. And I think it's not a difficult bug to fix. The company is disappointing its customers by ignoring their feedback.

    Windows 10 updated last night 13th April 2016 and my problem with the "Flight Mode" displaying even though not activated on or off has been sorted.
