    Network Icon Animation Activity is missing in Windows 7


    UPDATE : Scroll down to the end of the post for “Solution to Missing Network Icon Animation Activity in Windows 7

    Few days back, I mentioned about the Quick Launch Bar Missing in Windows 7 and How to add it.

    I have found one more thing missing in Windows 7 that really annoys me. This time it is “Windows 7 Network Icon Animation Activity in System Tray”.

    Look at the Icon before Sound Icon in System Tray...

    What is Network Icon Animation Activity?


    Most of the windows users know about Network Icon that sits in the System Tray. In Windows XP or Windows Vista, the Network Icon has two computers and gives you animation which tells you the packet movement on the network. If you have only one Computer lighting up and other doesn’t then you can tell that there is some problem with your Internet or LAN connectivity.

    The above functionality is called Network Icon Animation Activity.

    It is sad that Windows 7 Network Icon doesn’t provide this simple animation and it is annoying for most of the Windows 7 Users who sometimes depend on the Network Icon Animation to know how their Network or Internet is working.

    Please give back Network Icon Animation Activity in Windows 7

    I request to Microsoft to include Network Icon Animation Activity in their next Windows 7 Fix or Windows 7 Service Pack.
