Elementary allows for creation of WiFi hotspot in "network settings" menu. However, the Hotspot mode is turned off at every boot. How to make Elementary automatically create WiFi Hotspot at launch, if there's a WiFi adapter plugged in?

Network Setting ==> Hotspot ==> check the button & configure it (by giving a name and password u want)

after that open terminal and write: sudo scratch-text-editor /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/Hotspot

Find the string: autoconnect=false change it to: autoconnect=true

save and reboot to test if it works
