How do you disconnect an electrical outlet from a light switch?

Basically you need to connect the black supply wire directly to the outlet rather than have it go through switch. You can have two possible conditions. The first condition is that the supply comes to the switch box and connects to one side of the switch. The other side of the switch goes to the outlet. In this case just remove each black wire from the switch and connect them together with a wirenut. If the black supply wire goes to the outlet and there is another black wire going to the switch then there will also be a wire coming back from the switch. Just disconnect the wire coming from the switch to the outlet and connect the black supply wire directly to the outlet.
