Windows 7: No pop-up when clicking system tray network icon?

12 Sep 2011   #1

Windows 7, of course
No pop-up when clicking system tray network icon?

Hi guys,

Here's a goofy problem that's eventually happened to me on every Windows 7 install I've done. Has it happened to you?:

You want to connect to a wireless network, so you click the "network" icon in the system tray. But nothing happens; the usual network list doesn't appear. To see the menu, you have to open the Network and Sharing Center and click "Connect to a network". You must now do this each time—to connect or disconnect.

I realize this is more like basic Windows functionality than actual network stuff—but any idea what causes it, and how to fix it? Thanks, Ander
