Missing online icon

The taskbar icon showing one is online and which enables disconnecting has disappeared on my PC since yesterday. For example I am online now but will have to shut down in order to disconnect. Any ideas, please?

Start, Control Panel, Network Connections. Right click the connectionh, properties, tick 'Show icon in notification area when connected'.

In answer to VoG™, when I right-clicked on Network Connections all I got was the options explore/open/create shortcut and I couldn't progress further. I didn't understand pokemom's and johnnyrocker's suggestions, I'm afraid. Sorry to be so slow on the uptake

Network Connections should have a > follow that then right click on the actual connection - it will be called Local Area Connection or similar.

double left click network connections and enter.

Still no joy, sorry. I see no >, nor a connection on which to right click. Double left clicking on network connections reveals nothing.
