Love to play with Windows 11 and 10. Suggestion - Going for Registry change or system files edit then remember to take a backup or create a restore point before Starting.

  1. Just press the button following the F12 button(between the F12 and the print screen buttons),which has like an antenna on it. In my case,it worked like magic 🙂 I got rid of the airplane mode instantly and automatically switched to wifi mode.
