    Connection Status Display

    Just took my Windows 10 Laptop out of the house for the first time. I am so used to 7 and hovering the connection in the notification tray for IP address and connection speed I was surprised not to find this. And then more surprised not to be able to find some utility to regain this functionality. I want to know the connection speed from somewhere on the taskbar.

    Got a solution?

    Thanks Ed. I know. Would be nice to get to this just by a hover of something in the tray.
