How to show Laptop Power and Network icons on Taskbar

Some Laptops do not display Power and Network icons on the taskbar by default. It is much better to make icons and notifications appear on the taskbar because we can easily make out whether internet is connected to Laptop or not by seeing on the taskbar. If you see yellow color on Network icon it means that No Internet access. If Network icon marks with "X" it means that your Laptop is disconnected to internet Modem. Likewise, by showing Power icon on the taskbar, you can make out or check how much Power is remaining on your Laptop.

Here is how you have to do to show Power and Network icons on the taskbar:

1. Click on "Show hidden icons"
on the taskbar ("Show hidden icons" is shown next to Time and Date).

2. Click on "Customize..."

3. Click on Power drop down list and select "Show icon and notifications". Likewise, click on Network drop down list and select "Show icon and notifications" and then click OK button. Now you will be able to see Power and Network icons on your taskbar.
