    Ok Archimede. All Finished. The shortcuts in the tutorial below will automatically turn on/off Airplane mode, wait a second so you can verify, and close the right pane.

    Shawn this is already MUCH MUCH better

    If I may, I would rather do without the second of waiting since I can easily verify from the (plane or WiFi) tray icon that clearly shows which mode is currently on.

    I will send you a PM now.

    Thanks a bunch

    Well, I have to have the second delay though while it waits on Wi-Fi to be turned on/off. If it's closed immediately, it may not have enough time to actually turn it on/off before closing.

    Is there a way to HIDE the Airplane Mode toggle? It just takes up room. I never use it.

    Yes, that's what I am talking about. Would be great if you could ditch that.
