Vista: Add network icon to system tray

August 1, 2011

I’m not sure when it happened, but some time ago my Vista laptop lost the network connectivity icon from the system tray.

It was easy enough to get it back:

  1. Right-click in the system tray or task bar, then select Properties.
  2. Select the Notification Area tab.
  3. Select the check box for Network (and any others you want to display), then click OK.
