If you need to disable your wireless adapter to save battery, prevent connecting to a network in certain places, or for any other reason, Windows 10 also offers an option to re-enable and re-connect your device automatically.

  1. Click on the wireless icon in the bottom-right corner of the taskbar. (If you don't see the icon, click the app arrow button on the left.)

    Note: Alternatively, you can open Action Center (Windows key + A), and then click the Network button in the Quick actions section to access the network flyout.

  2. Click the Wi-Fi button.

  3. Use the drop-down menu and select when you want to re-enable and re-connect to the network. Option available include:

    • Manually.

    • In one hour.

    • In four hours.

    • In one day.

After completing the steps, the network adapter will re-enable automatically depending on the schedule you have configured. However, your computer will only auto-connect to those networks that you've previously configured to connect automatically.
