I have a Dell Inspiron 17 laptop. On the keyboard there's a special button that enables and disables the airplane mode. Is there a way to completely disable this button?

Now that makes more sense. Disable the wireless card in device manager when you want to shut off airplane mode. Taking your computer apart to disable a feature is absurd.

Yea all I want is to have the wifi on but disable the key entirely. It's annoying to have the function because I use f12 a lot and I keep hitting the airplane mode button accidentally D8

I am not sure if this will work for Dell, but on my HP Spectre x360, I went into the BIOS by restarting and repeatedly pressing F10, and then I went to System Configuration, and then disabled Action Keys. Hope this helps!
