I now know not to touch the F 7 key.
I have had my new laptop for four months now, and I am more comfortable with using it than I was when I first got it.
But I still have plenty to learn about my laptop. It is not possible to learn everything about a computer because they are always changing, but I am enjoying the process of learning whatever I can about my computer.
Included in this process is the keyboard-I was looking it over recently, pressing some of the keys on the top row to see what they do-when I noticed the key with an icon of a tiny airplane on it. Well, I then became curious about it so I pressed the key to see what it did. Nothing happened (or so I thought) so I went to check something on a website.
And it was then that I found out what purpose of the airplane key was. When I tried to get into the website all I got instead was a message on the screen telling me that I had not Internet or Wi-Fi connection. And I also noticed an airplane symbol on the lower right screen had taken the place of the Wi-Fi symbol.
What happened was when I pressed the airplane key, I put my laptop in “airplane mode,” which resulted in my computer being disconnected from the Wi-Fi and Internet. And for those of you who are clueless about tech jargon (like me) “airplane mode” is a setting on various devices which prevents the devices from sending or receiving anything via Wi-Fi or Internet. This is necessary when traveling on an airplane so that the device will not interfere with air traffic frequencies.
Now I do not remember exactly how I got my laptop connected to my Wi-Fi and Internet, but I was able to do so after a few minutes. And in the future I will not touch anything on my keyboard that I am not familiar with.
But I also have a Savior with whom I am very familiar. He is Jesus, and with Him I always have the right faith. Jesus is the key to God, and as we are told in Galatians 3:26: “You are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus.”
Thank You, Jesus, for keeping me in Christian mode.
