Just switched over from Cinnamon to Xfce, and I'm not entirely sure what to do here.
The upper right of the top panel does not have your usual icons for sound, wifi etc.How do I place these on the panel so I can easily connect to WiFi or raise and lower my volume,
Thanks a million

For sound I just use mixer.

For wifi I am using net-mgmt/networkmgr

It works good but you need to make an doas.conf

/usr/local/etc/doas.conf
Code:
    permit nopass keepenv :wheel cmd netcardmgr
    permit nopass keepenv :wheel cmd detect-nics
    permit nopass keepenv :wheel cmd detect-wifi
    permit nopass keepenv :wheel cmd ifconfig
    permit nopass keepenv :wheel cmd service
    permit nopass keepenv :wheel cmd wpa_supplicant

Do these create icons in the upper panel?

networkmgr places icon automatically and xfce4-power manager >right click on taskbar and Add new items. It should be in the list.

# pkg ins xfce4-volumed-pulse-0.2.2
# pkg ins xfce4-mixer-4.11.0_3

You should avoid to install one of them deskutils/xfce4-volumed or audio/xfce4-mixer. They are not anymore maintained by upstream for ages, and for the next stable release (4.14, no yet published date), they will be removed.
thanx @olivierd for advice.
i'm coming from linux and i found some thing useful , it works so i intalled it.
I need to read more about sound configuration in FreeBSD until now use the default and dosn't change any thing in .

for the icon of wifi in panel do these
you have to do this
# pkg ins networkmgr
# pkg ins py27-gtk2 doas
now make a file
# touch /usr/local/etc/doas.conf
and copy to it these
Code:
 permit :wheel
permit nopass keepenv :wheel cmd netcardmgr
permit nopass keepenv :wheel cmd detect-nics
permit nopass keepenv :wheel cmd detect-wifi
permit nopass keepenv :wheel cmd ifconfig
permit nopass keepenv :wheel cmd service
permit nopass keepenv :wheel cmd wpa_supplicant
permit nopass keepenv root
Make sure that the user using NetworkMgr is in the wheel group.
Now reboot.
