Turn flight mode on or off in Quick Settings

One of the fastest ways to turn flight on or off in Windows 11 is through the Quick Settings menu. To open it, click the audio and Wi-Fi icons in the lower-right corner of the taskbar next to the clock, or press Windows + a on your keyboard.

When opened, click the "Airplane Mode" button to turn flight mode on or off.

Turn the Airplane Mode on or off in Settings

You can also enable or disable flight mode from Windows Settings. To do this, open Settings by pressing Windows + i on your keyboard. In Settings, go to "Network & Internet", then click the switch next to "Airplane Mode" to turn it on or off.

If you click on the side edge (arrow) next to the switch, you can fine-tune if you only want to turn off Wi-Fi or Bluetooth, or even turn Wi-Fi on again after you turn on flight mode.

Turn flight mode on or off using a physical button

On many laptops, some tablets and some desktop keyboards, you may find a special button, switch or key that switches flight mode. Sometimes it is a switch on the side of a laptop that can turn all wireless functions on or off. Or sometimes it is a key with an "i" or a radio tower and many waves around it, as in the Acer laptop pictured below.

Eventually, you will need to consult your device manual to find the right button, but logically you should look for an icon that looks like a radiant wave or something similar. Good luck!
