    Taskbar network icon missing ( greyed out)


    Hi
    Have tried fixes as described in other posts.
    Tried enable_network_notification reg bat file.
    Task bar system icons for network and power are greyed out.
    Internet working fine but says no connection... IPv4 & 6 not connected. ( ethernet connection)
    Seems to be since Win10 Ann update
    Any ideas please ?
    Thanks

    When "Diagnostic Policy Service" is not running, Windows fails to detect working network.
    It is not really a problem, but you can not login to MS account or use some apps because of that.
    Download WNn.bat and run it as admin. It resets network services and hopefully enables network icon.

    Taskbar problems


    The solution that worked for me was to right click on the windows button, open run, type in msconfig.
    Click on services, check the box hide all microsft, then disable all and restart your computer.
    Hopefully this works for you
