    Network icon is gone in taskbar


    The computer icon with the eithernet connector (or if on Wi-Fi, the wifi logo) in the taskbar is gone from my system. And when I try to activate it from setting>taskbar my volume control icon turns on and off instead of making my network icon appear shown here with orage circles. I tried disabling all but nothing. Restart does nothing either.

    This solution don't fix it for me as I've tried as the settings for network are removing/adding the volume icon

    Thank you for posting on Microsoft Communities.

    Are you referring to the clock system icon on the taskbar?

    If so, I suggest you to follow the steps mentioned below:


    • Click on the search bar on the taskbar.

    • Type system icons.

    • Under Turn System Icons ON or OFF, turn On the Clock and check with the issue.

    Hope it helps.

    Network icon missing from taskbar

    Hi Wailana,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    Did you recently make any changes on the computer?

    Which edition(Home or Pro) of Windows 10 is installed on the computer?

    This can be caused by several reasons. The network icon could be missing from the task bar, the network services might not be running or the issue could be with Windows explorer.

    Let’s see if we can get the network icon back on taskbar by following the methods given below.

    Method 1: Enable Network icon from settings.

    • Right click on the taskbar and select Taskbar settings.
    • Under Notification area click on
      Select which icons appear on taskbar
      .
    • Toggle the switch to on for Network icon to make it appear on taskbar.
    • Go back and click on Turn system icons on or off. Toggle the switch for Network icon to turn it on if it is off.

    Method 2: Restart Windows Explorer

    • Right click on taskbar and select Task Manager.
    • Under Process tab, look for Explorer process.
    • Right click on Explorer process and select
      Restart option to restart the process.
    • Exit Task Manager and see if the network icon appears in the taskbar.

    Hope it helps.

    Please feel free to contact back in case you need any further assistance and let us know if you got the help you needed by clicking ‘Yes’ or ‘No’.
