Right click Task Bar Properties/Taskbar Tab/Customize

When new to W7, Google Windows 7 Tips and Tricks Forums.

It's been out 2 years now. I had trouble at first. Plenty to be found.

Although the new icon is a telly with a plug showing on the left. In the notificaton ares click on the up arrow head, click customoze and when you see the Network Icon then select 'Show Icon and Norifications'. Select OK at the bottom of the window.

Now 32Bit or 64Bit I have both and the 32Bit computer is much faster to start up and shut down.So maybe best staying where you are.
