    Interrupting Presentation Mode

    So I am working on creating some code that will interrupt Presentation Mode on Windows 10. Our workstations are set to log out after 5 minutes, but this GPO can be circumvented by using Presentation Mode.

    I've manged to create a bare-bones script that will detect if Presentation Mode is running, let it run for a specified amount of time, and then shut Presentation Mode off, but the problem is that the Mobility Center UI doesn't change to reflect the fact
    that Presentation Mode has been turned off. Mobility Center is where a user normally turns Presentation Mode on or off; when my code turns Presentation Mode off, the UI doesn't show any change and still claims Presentation Mode is on. Clicking the button in
    Mobility Center to turn off Presentation Mode after the code has turned it off causes the script to report that Presentation Mode has been turned back on, when in fact it has not.

  5. Windows 10 --- Airplane Mode Will Not Turn Off / Wi-Fi will not turn on

    Hi,



    Welcome to Microsoft Community. Your interest in Windows 10 is much appreciated.



    I would like to inform you that if the Airplane mode is turned on the computer it will suspends any signal transmissions from your computer to comply with airline regulations. Hence the feature like Wi-Fi and Bluetooth will not
    work when this mode is enabled on the computer.



    Method 1:

    I would suggest you to run network troubleshooter to check for any Internet connectivity issues.


      • Open Control Panel.

      • Click ‘Troubleshooting’
        in the search result.

      • Click on ‘Network and Internet’.

      • Click on ‘Network Adapter’
        to start the troubleshooter.


    Method 2:

    If the issue persists, I would suggest you to try the steps and check if it helps.

    • Open the Control Panel, click on the
      Network and Sharing Center link and click on the Connect to a network.
    • Airplane mode, move the slider right or left to turn it on or off.
    • When finished, you could close the Control Panel and press the
      Windows key to return to the Start screen.


    Note: You will not see an Airplane mode option if you are connected to a wired, Ethernet-based network.

    Method 3:

    If the issue persists, I would suggest you to download and install latest network driver from the computer manufacturer website and check if it helps.



    Keep us posted if you face any issues on windows in future. We will be glad to help you.
