    Desktop on/off

    You can right click on wireless connection icon to disable a adapter with XP, is there a keyboard shortcut to enable (like most laptops) without having to go to device manager? This is on desktop obviously.

    You can assign a key combo to do that (may need some third party software though).

    Is there any way to go directly to system info without my computer first, that's the one that slows me most even better directly to hardware or device manager itself. Would be nice if instead of disappearing after disabling the wifi icon stayed there with red x thru it and you could right click on it to enable, I wonder why they didn't do it that way.
