    How to replace wifi icon with ethernet/hardlined icon

    How can I change the wifi symbol to look like I'm hardlined into the internet? I saw a thread that showed how to replace all of the taskbar internet symbols at once, but not how to individually change or mask them. Thank you

    Hi and Welcome to TenForums!

    Could I ask why you would want to do this?

    You can achieve this by using Resource Tuner 2. The wifi/ethernet symbols are located in the pnidui.dll file where you can manually change them to whatever you want. Just make sure to have proper backups of your system before proceeding, if this file is protected by the OS then simply replacing it might not be that easy. You may have to replace it where ever Windows keeps the dll backups these days
