Ubuntu - How to disable Wi-Fi on my laptop?

September 2017



Issue


I've installed Ubuntu on my laptop and since then the Wi-Fi hotkey is not working (I can't turn off Wi-Fi). Are there any other way to access these settings?

Solution


To disable Wi-Fi:
  • Right-Click on the NetworkManager icon NetworkManager (in the top panel) uncheck "Enable Wireless"
