  2. Airplane mode switch not working

    Since the troubleshooting steps that were provided did not resolve the issue, we suggest switching on the Radio Management Service. To do that, please follow the steps below:

    • Press Windows key + R.
    • Type services.msc, then hit Enter.
    • Search for Radio Management Service.
    • Right-click, then choose Start.

    Note: Never ever set this service to "Disabled".

    Get back to us if the steps won't work.

  3. New FF - passwords


    Hi:

    If that setting is already enabled, then I suggest as the next troubleshooting step might be Mozilla Safe Mode (not to be confused with Windows Safe Mode)):

    Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode | Firefox Help


    • Please report back and let us know the outcome, as it will dictate the next steps.
    • Also: please tell us what AV/AM/firewall programs are you running on this system?

    Thanks,
    MM

    Windows10 running in selective mode vs. normal mode


    I think we can put this to bed now, here is my final take on Selective Mode vs. Normal Mode. Windows10 will switch to Selective Mode when a system driver is at a version level not verified or approved by Microsoft. For example, updating my display driver to the latest version caused Windows10 to switch into Selective Mode. Once Windows10 switches to Selective Mode, as far as I have tested, it will not go back into Normal Mode. I suspect this has to do with the Registry changing due to upgrading a system driver. So, after leaving things alone and letting Windows10 select the drivers Windows10 stayed in Normal Mode. I then upgraded my network adapter driver and bam, Windows10 switch to Selective Mode and would not revert back to Normal Mode even after rolling back the driver.

    Running in Selective Mode is, basically, no different than running in Normal Mode. So if you should notice your computer running in Selective Mode it means there is a system driver that Microsoft has not yet approved, verified, recognized, or provided by Microsoft. As long as your computer is running without problems, everything is just fine.

    As a side note, I did contact Microsoft support on this issue. As far as Microsoft is concerned Windows10 should run in Normal Mode. They can't or won't explain why Windows10 is running in Selective Mode, nor will they tell you it is ok. Microsoft technical support provides very basic support, nothing too complicated, and can't really help for more involved issues. As an IT professional I found Microsoft support to be condescending as they assume the customer knows nothing and they don't listen very well. Microsoft support would much rather remote in to your machine than provided an explanation or talk you through a resolution. And, once Microsoft determines your copy of Windows is an OEM version, not the retail version, they abruptly stop giving you support.

    So there you have it, Selective Mode is ok as long as no problems with your computer. You may find your Windows10 computer may be running in Selective Mode if it is from HP, Lenovo, Dell, Toshiba, ASUS, MSI, or any other computer manufacture as most of these manufactures install system drivers designed for their respective systems.

    My next post will be on using SSD and a hard drive together, stay tuned.
