Creating a VPN Shortcut in Windows 7

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Networking' started by Chaplain Doug, Jan 25, 2010.

  1. Windows 7

    I have created a VPN in Windows 7 using Control Panel>Network and Sharing
    Center. It seems that I have to go through Control Panel>Network and Sharing
    Center>Connect to a Network and then select my VPN, then select "Connect."
    This is a lot of steps. In Windows XP I could create a desktop shortcut to
    the VPN, click on it and it would connect. How may I create such a shortcut
    to my VPN in Windows 7?

  2. There is no "Manage network connections" option in the Network and Sharing
    Center. Any other thoughts?

  3. Thanks Bob. That did the trick. Quite cryptic and non-intuitive. I've been
    a computer geek for over 30 years. Heaven help the novice.
