if I click on the networking icon in the systray in the lower right of Win10, I see "WiFi turned off".
Below it is a drop down to turn wifi on Manually, in 1 hour, 2 hours etc. But there's no button to just turn it back on. If I click on Network and Internet settings and then WiFi - I can toggle a wifi switch to On. BUT the wifi in fact doesn't get turned on when I return to the systray network area. I don't see a WiFi toggle button on the laptop. Any advice?
