    Network icon not working anymore


    I have a wonky internet connection so I really like to see how things are going by the small icon that is either Pc like or globe like. However my pc has been always showing the no internet icon no matter what my connection is actually like. What are things that could cause this? What should I try to do?

  2. Edge Search Does Not Permit Change of Region


    I got these suggestions from the Microsoft Community forum.No. 1 worked for me:

    Thank you for posting the query on Microsoft Community. I am glad to assist you on this.
    We have reproduce the issue here and we are able to access non-regional search for google using Microsoft Edge.
    I would suggest you to try the below steps and check if it helps.
    Step 1:
    Clear browsing data option of Microsoft Edge and check if you face the issue. To do so perform the steps below.

    1. Click on the More actions icon next to the feedback icon present on top right corner of the Project Spartan homepage.
    2. Select Settings and click on Choose what to clear.
    3. Check the boxes Browsing history, Cookies and saved website data and Cached data and files and click on Clear.
    Step 2:
    I suggest you to create a new user account and check if the issue occurs.

    1. Go to Settings.
    2. Choose Accounts and then select Family and other users.
    3. Select add someone else on this PC.
    4. Enter a user name and hit next.
    5. Click on Finish.
    6. Sign out from the current Account and Log into the new account.
    Step 3:
    It could also happen because of network issue. I suggest you to try with different network connection and check if it helps.

    Did our Epson printer get hacked?

    Another question, is this on a home network or a work network? The steps @eidairaman1 listed are always a good first step. If this is on a work network you manage, I'd be much more concerned than the home one. It is possible someone is screwing with you, but malware could also be the culprit.
     
  4. Network icon not working anymore

    The Network Panel does not open when I Click on Network Icon

    Hi,

    Thank you for providing us a detailed description of the issue with your network icon and for sharing with us the troubleshooting steps you've already tried to resolve this problem. Since everything has been updated, what we can try is to manage your wireless
    networks. Let's see if clearing out the known networks on your WiFi settings and reconnecting to your own network will address it. Please follow the steps below:

    • Open Settings and click Network & Internet.
    • In the left pane, click WiFi, then Manage Wi-Fi settings.
    • Under Manage known networks, remove the networks that you don't connect to anymore.

    Once cleared, click the network icon on your taskbar and see if it opens. Let us know if the problem persists so we can further check on it.

    Regards.
