I am trying to pin the wireless icon to my system tray so I can just click it to open a wireless connection or find a wireless connect.

windows 7. so if as you say I see the network icon I would simply open that and select the wireless? Other wise I see the little monitor with what looks like a fork or plug on the left of it?
John

The icon with the fork is the Power Manager.

There should be a little UP arrow in your system tray. Click that and select Customize. You should find the wireless icon in there.

Set it to show Icons and Notifications both.

on my laptop I just checked in the custom and I have my network icon but I do not see wireless icon. I see power, action center, network, volume, windows explorer, outlook, and I just said to show all icons but I do not see a wireless icon? I now have show all icons back off as I do not wish to see all of them without going to the arrow up. My wireless works but I do not see the icon?

Thanks techs. I finally got it to show up and it works fine now. Great help and patience. Seems it is the cosmetics that kills me every time. All of these answers were good. Thanks again for the help.

You actually made the most of what I was looking for but since the other 2 did look, I like to reward all that at least gave me the time of day, and actually they gave a tip for later.
