    Create shortcut to pc settings/network/airplane mode


    Ive seen the toggles/shortcuts to turn airplane mode of and on, but I wanted a shortcut to the page instead. Is this possible?

    Hello Vinscuzzy, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    You could create a shortcut using the location below to open directly to Airplane Mode in PC settings. You can then use whatever icon you like with the shortcut.

    Code:
    explorer.exe %localappdata%\Packages\windows.immersivecontrolpanel_cw5n1h2txyewy\LocalState\Indexed\Settings\en-US\AAA_SettingsPageNetworkAirplaneMode.settingcontent-ms
