    Airplane mode locked on


    Hi, Bob Wilbanks here,

    I have a relatively new del laptop that has the airplane mode locked on. When I try to log it off the mouse has no effect on the open green on box.
    I tried the HOW TO TURN AIRPLAIN MODE ON OR OFF in Windows 8 and 8.1
    My os is 8.1
    The box would still not change.

    Can you help me?

    Hello rdwilbanks, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Double check to see if your laptop may have a switch or button on it that toggles airplane mode on/off with. This switch could override the setting in Windows.
