    Huh, it just opens the sidebar and gives up. The shortcuts are crappy for me.

    But I managed this, using Quick Macros to execute the keyboard sequence

    Win+I
    Down
    Down
    Down
    Down
    Enter
    Down
    Right
    Esc

    Done

    I tried accessing the link but:

    1. Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?
    2. If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.
    3. The page has been removed or deleted


    if the page is deleted, does anyone have the mentioned files to share?

    Hello badjer, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    I'm sorry, but yeah the tutorial had been removed since the shortcuts no longer work.

    Airplane Mode On or Off Shortcuts - Create in Windows 8
    I found this from searching Bing because I want to do the same thing - enable or disable Airplane mode or my wireless NIC when the tablet goes to sleep. I can't view your tutorial, but I found I could do this easily enough with two schedule tasks.

    One task to enable airplane mode when the tablet has gone to sleep and locked (trigger is when workstation locked) to run this command with highest privileges:

    Code:
    netsh interface set interface name="Wi-Fi" admin = disabled
    And another scheduled task to trigger when the workstation is unlocked to run this to disable airplane mode:

    Code:
    netsh interface set interface name="Wi-Fi" admin = enabled

    I've tested this so far and it seems to work great. I can view on the lock screen that the WiFi has disabled, and when I unlock the WiFi turns back on.

    How come the page with the turn airplane mode off.exe is not available? Only utility claiming to be able to do so programmatically. No, it is not a simple matter, NO SOLUTION in days and airplane mode is still on and only wifi goes out and not even Bluetooth setting open up... and furthermore I get here a message about permission in this account? Airplane mode is more than an API call, it is a full SOMETHING Windows does under the hood but can be bypassed by wifi and keep BLUETOOTH off. It is not the responsibility of the vendor nor the card vendor, it is responsibility of Windows to solve this matter. - Every laptop has a different fn key setup shortcut for this, the problem here is deep in the OS.
