Hi;

New user of Vista here.(stuck it out with XP S3 a long time)

How can I make a shortcut of my connections in Vista Home Basic(came with Dell)? And, how can I make a shortcut so that I can view the "View Status" of each connection instead of going to the Network Sharing Center and clicking view status....

In XP I would just click the icon in the status tray and I'll get to see the statusof the connection outrightly.

How can I do this..? Help please:-)

Thank you!

Hello,

You can do this :

1. Right click on the desktop and select New and then Shortcut.

2. In the location box, copy and paste explorer.exe ::{7007ACC7-3202-11D1-AAD2-00805FC1270E} and hit Next.

3. Type in Network Connections as the name and Finish.

Hi Jeyandran ;

Just tried your tip in Windows 7 its great. Thanks for the assistance. You rock!

Maybe you have approaches to making Vista and Windows 7 faster. Test bed is related to my other post about VirtualBox re: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/ind...=342999&hl= If you have time or if anyone here can add an approach or tip please you are welcome to add.

Thank you!
