Normally, if you do not use Wifi anymore, users often turn off Wifi to extend battery life, ... However, when you need to use, we have to manipulate a few more steps to reopen Wifi. This is extremely time consuming and labor intensive. To save effort and time, we can set the time to re-enable Wifi after a certain period of time. Although there is no automatic option on the operating system to turn on Wifi after a certain period of time, but with Windows 10 build 14942 users can configure Windows 10 to automatically turn on Wifi after about 1 hour, 4 hours and 1 day.
