    Computer shows airplane symbol and won't turn off


    My computer shows the airplane mode and when I click on it it doesn't show the menu to go and select a wi-fi. So I go to settings and disable airplane mode and manually connect to a wi-fi and it works for a short amount of time until I have to reconnect it using the same process.

  2. permanently disable airplane mode

    Hi,

    Airplane mode gives you a quick way to turn off all wireless communications on your computer. So it can not be removed. It can only be turned off. However, you follow a helpful solution provided by George JeffryChilders and monohydrate from the link below to
    help you when Airplane Mode won't turn off on your Windows 10 computer.

    Latest Win 10 update incorrectly changed network connectivity symbol to Airplane Mode

    The latest Win 10 update shows an Airplane Symbol indicating that the computer's WiFi is turned off. While this is true, the computers Ethernet connection is very much on and working. The previous desktop/display symbol for an Ethernet connection is
    missing, and leaves one with a belief that internet connectivity is gone. Will someone please ask Microsoft to fix this. I could not find any way to report this as a bug since Microsoft does not provide a way to do this on their web sites.

    First, restart the PC and see if that fixes it. If you routinely hibernate or just shut down (assuming it's still on the default Fast Start option) then settings like this that have got out of sorts can persist. A full restart will reset them.
