        I am using Windows 10 Home, v. 2004, 64-bit, with a laptop connected to the Internet via Wi-Fi.

        I just noticed that if I click on the Wi-Fi or Clock icons (both in the System Tray), nothing happens.  Typically, clicking on the Wi-Fi icon would show the available Wi-Fi networks and the tiles for Wi-Fi, Airplane Mode, Mobile Hotspot. And normally clicking on the clock would bring up the calendar.

        Plese note:  The laptop is able to connect to all the registered Wi-Fi networks.  I don’t have a problem connecting to the Internet so long as one of the registered Wi-Fi networks is available.  But the problem would be if I need to connect to a new Wi-Fi network.

        All the other icons in the System Tray seem to work ok.

        Has anyone else experienced this?

        2004 is in the beta stages and has some (many) bugs.
        regarding system tray see

        One poster’s solution :

        “In the end I used the Recovery setting to go back to the previous version of Windows 10 (version 1909).

        The system tray icons are now working as expected, and I think I’ll wait before upgrading to version 2004 again.”
