As you have a Mac that supports AirPlay Mirroring, you should see the AirPlay (or Displays) icon in the menu bar without any problem. Open System Preferences > Displays, and make sure that "Show mirroring options in the menu bar when available" option is ticked.
Also, note that Displays icon is now different on OS X Mountain Lion. See > http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5404

Hola, muchas gracias .. I don't use an Apple TV so need for Mirroring.
I just wanted the diplay icon up there to make it easier to check Display Settings such as Brightness and different Calibrations or arrangement of my other Monitor.

You would be surprised, but on OS X Mountain Lion, Displays icon has disappeared and now it can only be used for AirPlay Mirroring. When you want to modify your display settings, you will have to open System Preferences > Displays

No, I'm sorry to say I am NOT surprised. I switched to Apple about 6 years ago because I was tired of the constant so-called upgraees in Windows and the tinkering their "kids" did. Until 10.6.8 I could never have been happier and the Mac really works well with photographic editing: Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom.
The last several changes have really been just changes for change hoping to impress a senior programmer with "activity.". NO real iprovements. They are devoting ALL their time and energy to IOS and hopeing to keep ahead of the smartphone group. They have their work cut out there.
I hate to even think about making the change back to Windows because I think it is doing the same thing.
It has become a real P I the A for those of us over 40 who don't spend all day with earbuds and checking our Twitter or Facebbok, or ....
Until they feel the heat it won't change .. Sad.
Thanks for trying, giving you a "helped me." Wish you could solve it.
Tenga un gran dia,
