Windows 10 - disconnect from the Internet easily

I had a question from a reader looking for an easy way to disconnect from the Internet without losing their settings in Windows 10.

To do this, I want you to click on your network icon in the system tray on the lower right.

If you’re using a laptop or tablet, you can just click Airplane mode. That will instantly take you offline. Just click or tap it again to turn your connection back on.

If you don’t have an Airplane Mode option, then look for your network and click on it.

Then choose Disconnect.

That will log you off the Internet. Connecting should be as simple as clicking Connect.

If you’re prompted to re-enter the network password when you log on, you’ll want to make sure that you check Connect Automatically. Then the next time, you won’t have to enter the key again.

Hope that helps.
