    Show airplane mode switch on wifi menu on desktop computer


    I will be keeping the wireless turned off most of the time on my desktop, as I use it for live pro audio. Is there a registry hack to put the switch in there, even if the computer is not a laptop???

    Airplane mode: ms-settings:network-airplanemode
    Hi, you can use the above when creating a new shortcut, if that's what you need- I'm not sure.
    Remember you can access Flight Mode ('Airplane Mode') from the Action Centre (icon in system tray in the taskbar).

    Here are some more FYI:
    Manage Wi-Fi: ms-settings:network-wifisettings
    Mobile hotspot: ms-settings:network-mobilehotspot
    Wi-Fi: ms-settings:network-wifi

    well, none of these settings
    exist on my install because my machine is a desktop. I'm obviously going to have to add something to the registry to get the airplane mode switch to appear.

    Unfortunately, a web search for this is impossible, as hundreds of people using win 10 have had problems with their airplane mode switch getting stuck ON, and that problem uses all the same search terms!!

    Sorry, perhaps you need more detail as to how to create a shortcut.
    You won't find those settings as such.
    So.
    Right click on your desktop.
    Click new, click shortcut.
    Type one of those strings in the box.
    For example ms-settings:network-airplanemode
    Click Next
    Give the shortcut an appropriate name.
    Now double click on the shortcut to use it.
    To give it an icon,
    Rt click it, click Properties
    Click 'Change icon' and browse for an appropriate picture.
    (You may wish to download an appropriate picture)

    You need to decide which one or ones are useful to you.

    What happens when you click on the icon near the clock- a box with a small v at the bottom containing 3 lines? You should get the action centre with tiles appear from the right. You will see two tiles related to Wifi.

    These open Settings at the appropriate point.

    I'm now guessing you actually want sthg to turn Wifi off automatically at startup- sorry, your first question is unclear, but appears to imply you want it off. Is that so?

    Or is this what you want to see (in Settings?)

    That's what this does: ms-settings:network-airplanemode

    Hello dalchina,

    I don't think the problem is with creating an Airplane Mode shortcut.

    Instead, the issue is that it's a desktop computer, and not being able to toggle on/off Airplane Mode.

    Woodslanding,

    I see that you gigabyte z97 itx motherboard has a dual band WIFI card. You could enable and disable the Wi-Fi adapter from "Network and Sharing Center" as needed if you like.

    Yes, that is true, and it's what I've always done. But I'm sure there is a registry setting that will fool windows into thinking I have a laptop. Since I move this computer around a lot, that would not be inappropriate. It's so nice to have that little icon for flight mode in the network and notifications windows from the taskbar.....

    Hi, ok, this is what happens when 'Flight Mode' is turned on:

    Hopefully from that one can get control of 'Airplane Mode' for a desktop.. or at least fool the OS appropriately.
    I can understand MS removing the GUI elements for Airplane Mode for a desktop, but not why that leads to problems for some desktop owners.. but hey, this is Win 10.

    I can see what woodslanding is after now- to force the desktop OS to expose elements of the GUI reserved for laptop configurations.

    Hmm... "Ladies and gentlemen, please ensure your desktop is safely stowed under the seat in front of you. Please be aware the voltage available from the power outlets is 240V. Would visitors coming from the US and other areas please take special care to avoid potential fire risk. An extinguisher can be found under you seats. Thank you. Have a safe flight..."
