HP Notebook PCs - Airplane Mode (Windows 8)
This support document pertains to HP Notebook PCs with Windows 8.
Airplane mode is a Windows 8 setting that disables the computer's ability to transmit or receive signals, while still allowing the use of other programs, such as games or music players. Turning on airplane mode turns off wireless networks, mobile broadband, and Bluetooth connections.
Turning on airplane mode also makes the battery charge last longer because the computer is not using power to look for networks, connections, or information.
NOTE: If you are not using the latest version of Windows 8, some graphics and information in this document may vary. You can get the latest version from the Microsoft Store.
Turning airplane mode on or off
Use airplane mode whenever you are a passenger on an airplane, plan on being offline, or need to conserve battery power.
