Windows 10: Wireless network icon showing when I don't have a wireless card

    Wireless network icon showing when I don't have a wireless card


    I migrated my installation from my laptop so save reinstalling a million apps again. All went as well as can be expected.

    One thing I haven't been able to sort is that I have the "airplane" icon in the notification area and my desktop doesn't actually have a wireless card. If I move the mouse over the icon I get a message "wireless communications turned off".

    Is it possible to change this back to the standard network icon?

    If you have those options in Settings, would seem possible.

    I've checked and I don't have wireless in the quick icons area. Noticed it's in the "get notifications from these senders" and clicked off but this hasn't made a difference.

    And presumably the Action Centre shows nothing for Wifi?
