How to Disable Airplane Mode in Windows 8/Windows 8.1?

Since every laptop PC nowadays supports USB stick that many users use to access the Internet or send or receive other communication signals, Windows 8/Windows 8.1 has built-in Airplane Mode which when enabled, prohibits such signals.

Airplane Mode is available in almost all the latest mobile devices that are manufactured these days. The reason behind integrating the Airplane Mode in mobile devices is the assumption that when the users travel by air, they don’t need to completely power off their devices, as it is recommended by most airline services.

This being said, when Airplane Mode is turned on, users can continue using their mobile devices’ built-in features such as camera, audio player, video player, etc., but they can’t use any feature that needs signal transmission such as making or receiving phone calls, sending or receiving text messages, etc.
