Windows 10: Airplane mode with Bluetooth ON? Solved

    Airplane mode with Bluetooth ON?


    Is there a way to keep Bluetooth on in the airplane mode? My application is on a cruise ship where I would like to easily turn WiFi off using the convenient airplane mode selection and leave Bluetooth on for my mouse on my Venue 10 tablet.

    Hello Calbear,

    Yes. When airplane mode is turned on, you'll still be able to turn on or off your individual Bluetooth and wireless devices.

    Yes you can use that to turn Bluetooth back on when in the Airplane mode. However, if you cycle the Airplane mode off and back on it turns the Bluetooth off again. So its not a "setup" function it is an operational function. I'm looking for a setup where the Bluetooth is always on.

    I suppose that you could turn on/off wireless instead of Airplane mode as a workaround to always have Bluetooth left turned on.

    Yes, that's the plan. Thanks!

    Haven't tried Airplane Mode and keeping Bluetooth on with my 2 Dell and 1 HP Notebooks but do know if I turn off the Wi-Fi adapter that the Bluetooth is also off, seems to be part and parcel for the 2 functions. I can have Wi-Fi off and Bluetooth on with an older Notebook but it has separate USB dongles, built-in Wi-Fi died. Also seems that my MacBook Pro has separate functions.
