    Wifi Networks not showing


    On my Laptop if I wanted to change the wifi connection I would always see a list of the available networks when I selected the Wifi icon on the task bar.
    Since the last major update to Windows 10 I find that when I select the wifi icon I only see the current connection

    To see other networks within range I have to open the 'Network settings' and choose 'Show available networks' - then they show up.

    Does anyone have any explanation for this - or possibly a 'fix' to show them all from the taskbar again.

    Uninstall the device and driver in Device Manager, reboot and reinstall the wifi driver from HP's Support site for your laptop.
