    Disable the green Status online icon in the file explorer status bar?


    I have inadvertently activated this green "Status online" icon in the Windows 10 20H2 file explorer status bar.
    This icon appears only for one Synology NAS directory.

    I don't need any online indicator or functionality.

    Where can I disable/stop this function?

    The easiest way to fix it is :
    • Open File Explorer and click on the view tab.
    • Go to Options and select Change Folder and search options.
    • Click on the View tab and scroll down until you see Navigation Pane (which should be towards the bottom).
    • Uncheck the box Always show availability status and click OK.


    You should be then all set

    Thank you for your suggestion @Psychocyr
    Unfortunately, this option is already unchecked:

    But the green status bar indicator is still visible/active.

    How can it be that exactly the same question (with my very specific Synology printscreen) appears here:

    with other answers then here at tenforums.com?

    Im absolutely sure that I have no connection to "windowsphone" nor I own such a phone nor I'm a member and I have never wrote there a question. They even use my WTen-Username!

    @Brink (or any other admin): Do you share this forum?

    I think I have found the reason for my indicator problem:

    One of my file explorer context menu entries is called "Immer Offline verfügbar" (always available offline). It seems that I clicked it by accident.

    After DEACTIVATING offline files, the icon and the "status online" text are no more visible in the file explorer.
