You should still be able to view network connections via the Network Connections app located at Menu->Settings->Network Connections.

To get your wifi and volume indicators to return to the panel, try this:
     1) Menu->Settings->Panel
     2) Go to the Items tab
     3) Hit the + button located on the right
     4) Select Indicator Plugin
     5) Hit the +Add button

If my hunch is correct, your wifi and volume icons will reappear.

Right-click on empty area of panel and choose Panel -> Panel Preferences -> Items (tab).  Look to see if item "Notification Area" is listed.
It is listed.  Hovering my mouse over it reveals that its internal name is systray-6  PID:2232

If it is, select it and hit the "Edit" button along right side of window.  Look to make sure sound and network things are not marked as "hidden".
None of the items are marked hidden. The only icons I can see listed are:

Thunar Progress Dialog Vlc
Esets_gui (my antivirus)
Mumble
Network Manager Applet
Task Manager
Ibus Panel
Clementine
Blueman-applet
Xfce Power Manager
Scp-dbus-service.py

I don't see the WiFi & Volume icons...

Right-click on empty area of panel and choose Panel -> Panel Preferences -> Items (tab).  Look to see if item "Notification Area" is listed.  If it's not, add it to the panel to restore missing network and sound items.  If it is, select it and hit the "Edit" button along right side of window.  Look to make sure sound and network things are not marked as "hidden".

After booting up today, I noticed that on the Panel, that runs horizontally along the bottom of the laptop display, the usual icons for Network and Volume Control were missing.  These icons come by default when LL is installed, and are located on the right-hand end of the Panel bar.  The Network one is particularly useful as it allows me to switch network for the Wi-Fi connection  and also shows me the internet connection speed.  The Volume icon is also useful as it allows me coarse control for Clementine or other media players.

I don't know why they are missing - maybe I inadvertently clicked on something?
How do I reinstate them?

Many thanks, as ever,  for your kind help...

Regards
Mike
