Schedule your Wi-Fi to be automatically Turned On

Every morning, after checking emails and feeds, I usually turn off my work PC’s Wi-Fi for an hour or two so that I can work without any distractions. I have observed that turning off the Wi-Fi and staying away from internet updates improves my productivity. Many of us often turn off Wi-Fi for various reasons. Some users turn off Wi-Fi to work peacefully, and many turn off Wi-Fi when not required to improve the battery life of their PC.

Up until now, there was no option to automatically turn Wi-Fi back on after some time but starting with Windows 10 build 14942, one can configure Windows 10 automatically turn Wi-Fi back on after 1 hour, 4 hours, or 1 day. The best thing about this new feature is that the option to turn Wi-Fi back on appears right after you turn off the Wi-Fi either via Wi-Fi flyout or Settings app. Following are the two ways to configure Windows 10 to automatically turn Wi-Fi back on in 1 hour, 4 hours, or 24 hours.

Important: You must be running Windows 10 build 14942 or later build to use this feature.
