For some reason I cannot see the network icon in the taskbar any more. When I go to "Turn system icons on or off" the network and action centre icons are off and grayed out so I cannot enable them.
I spent hours looking for a solution in the web, but none helped me. I checked the "Start menu and taskbar" group policy as suggested - everything is "not configured". I tried to delete "iconstreams" and "PastIconStream" registry values suggested by others but nothing helped, even after reboots.
The computer is joined to domain and I'm logged on as a domain user which is also a local administrator. I tried to switch to a local user, and also left the domain and defined workgroup - same issue. What can I do?
Edit: HideSCANetwork registry value does not exist, and "Remove the networking icon" group policy setting does not exist either (I also checked with
gpresult /h gpresults.html as suggested below)
