  1. Disable hardware device. Permanently.

    A family member has an old laptop with dual graphics which unfortunately don't play well with Windows 10.

    If both are enabled at the same time, then Windows sits at a black screen for 2 minutes before showing the login screen.

    To remedy this problem, I disabled the integrated graphics via device manager. The laptop now boots up in 5 seconds.

    Unfortunately, after a period of time - possibly after an update - the integrated graphics gets re-enabled and the problem returns.

    Any ideas on how I can make this solution permanent?

  2. How to disable Airplane mode permanently on Windows 10?

    Hi Hunky,

    As you are facing issues with turning on or off Airplane on your device, do not worry we will help you with this issue.

    Do let us know if you have made any changes to the operating system prior to this issue?

    The option you are looking for to permanently disable Airplane mode is unfortunately not available.

    Let us try few of the below troubleshooting steps to disable Airplane mode and check if it helps.

    Step 1: To turn off Airplane mode from Settings and check.

    • Press Windows key, click on Settings
      from the left pane.
    • Click on Network & Internet.
    • Under Airplane mode turn it off and check.

    Step 2: To Turn On or Off Airplane Mode in Network Notification Area Icon

    • Click on the Network icon in the taskbar notification area.

    • Click on the Airplane mode button to toggle on or off.

    Step 3: To Turn On or Off Airplane Mode in Action Center

    • Open Action Center by clicking Windows + A keys from keyboard.

    • Click on the Airplane mode quick action button to toggle on or off.

    If the settings are not refining, this issue might have occurred due to corrupted/ missing system files.

    Step 4: I suggest you to run SFC scan and check if it helps.

    System File Checker is a utility in Windows that allows users to scan for corruptions in Windows system files and restore corrupted files. If a
    Windows Resource Protection (WRP) file is missing or is corrupted, Windows may not behave as expected.

    Follow the below steps:

    • Right click on the Start button, click on
      Command Prompt (Admin).
    • Type “sfc /scannow” without the quotes and hit
    • After the scan, restart the computer and check for the issue.

    Hope it helps. Reply to the post with updated status of disabling the Airplane mode for further assistance.

    Thank you.

    Disabling laptop keyboard


    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    As per the description. Let me help you in resolving the issue.

    I suggest you follow the steps below and check if that helps:

    • Press Windows + X and select
      Device Manager
      from the list.
    • Find Keyboards in the list of devices and click the arrow to expand it.
    • Right-click on the internal keyboard and click Disable. If there is no Disable option listed, click
    • Click File>Exit. Your laptop’s internal keyboard should now be disabled.
    Note: If you had to choose Uninstall instead of Disable in step 4, the keyboard will be automatically detected and re-installed if you ever have the Device Manager scan for new hardware for some reason. If that happens you’ll need to repeat this procedure
    in order to uninstall it again.

    Hope the information helps. Please let us know if the issue persist and we will be happy to assist you further.
