Changing a switched outlet
I have an outlet in my house that is powered by a wall switch. I'd like to have the outlet continuously powered without having to use the wall switch. Suggestions? Thanks!

Shut the appropriate breaker off....then remove the switch. Take the two wires that were previously connected to the switch and connect them to each other with a wirenut.

Put a blank cover plate where the switch used to be.

Turn power back on.
