Windows 7: Resizing Wireless Network Icon

Resizing Wireless Network Icon

I am working with a Windows 7 Embedded system used by pilots in agricultural work. The C: drive is locked to protect the data when we are done configuring. Any pilots entries are erased when the system is re-powered. Also, the touch screen is only about 6" x 8" so I would love to have the wireless network icon NOT be minimized in the task tray but, instead minimized on the task bar. Anyone know if this is possible? I have attached an actual image of the icon opened. You will recognize the small bars in the upper left corner as the wireless icon that is minimized to a small icon in the system tray or on the right of the taskbar. How can I (or can I) get this to behave as a normal minimized icon ON the taskbar?

Both Windows 7 64 & Windows 10 LTSB
 
 

If you have time to try this: Network Activity Indicator for Windows 7 - CodeProject

Otherwise there are no Windows work arounds to this issue.

I didn't think anything was possible editing the builtin app. If I can re-locate the stored Wireless passwords to another location, that will serve the same purpose. I started another thread on that.
