Win 11 Taskbar Wifi Popup Shows weird Option/Title/Text

Copper Contributor

Below is a screenshot of the wifi popup. Note the bottom of the image where is say "Airplane mc Mobile hot". No idea when this first appeared. 

What is this? Where does it come from? Is this something I need to be concerned about? How do I get rid of it?

I have tried doing a complete WiFi reset and even a system restore from about 4  weeks ago but this Text persists.

Such options have been around for a while and are feature of Windows to have easier access.
However, the issue is there should be a border around them which is mising.
Try restart your PC and see if the problem persists?
Are you using Insider build?

Window reboot, Network (to factory settings) Reset, System Restore none of which made any difference.
Not sure what Insider build is

BTW The "options" beneath the text Network & Internet Settings are not clickable/selectable. In othwerword, they appear to do nothing

Just checked this popup menu on my other pc running win10. This explains the weird text on my Win11 installation but does not explain why the WIFI popup appears corrupted under Win11


This is the same popup under win10

In the device which you have a problem try open start and search for Feedback and open the Feedback Hub app and report this issue and make sure include screenshot.
Try perform a Clean Boot and see if the problem persists:

Thanks for your response. The Clean Boot did not fix the problem. I will send Feedback as you suggested

Thank you for the update.
Open start and search for cmd or Command prompt and right click and run as administrator and then type the following command:

sfc /scannow

Press enter and let it runs.
In this case, either you need to reinstall the Windows to see if that solved the issue.
Or you may wait to see if the future updates would fix the issue.
