Turn Wi-Fi back on automatically on Windows 10

Quote:Microsoft introduced a new feature in the Windows 10 Creators Update that gives users an option to turn Wi-Fi back on automatically after a set period of time.

It may sometimes be useful to turn off Wi-Fi on a device. Maybe you want to work without being interrupted by constant Facebook, Twitter or Pinterest pings, or want to turn off Wi-Fi to extend battery life somewhat.

Up until now you had to turn off Wi-Fi, and turn it back on, manually. That options is still there on Windows 10, but there is a new option that may make the process more comfortable for some users of the operating system.

The workflow is the same mostly. Start by clicking on the wireless icon in the System Tray area of the Windows Taskbar.

Windows displays available access points to you provided that Wi-Fi is enabled. A click on the Wi-Fi icon toggles the feature. If Wi-Fi is enabled, it is turned off, and if it is disabled, it is turned back on.

When you disable Wi-Fi using the method, you get a new option that is called "Turn Wi-Fi back on". It is configured by default to manually. This means that you need to turn on Wi-Fi manually to make use of it again.

When you click on the menu however, you get options to schedule an automatic start of the device's Wi-Fi functionality. Options are provided to turn Wi-Fi back on after one or four hours, or a day.
