To keep it simple use the task scheduler to do just that; make and connect a share by either your login or trigger of your choice.
If it's just for admin or maintenance use you can go so far as to install a tool like webmin which lets you connect to the NAS via http(s) and manage any/all settings and connections that way. You can move, add/delete files/folders, or copy as needed. Over kill for normal user use but fantastic for administration. (Used it for years until my server died 10 years ago but just checked that webmin for linux/debian is still alive.)
I usually just use "net use" commands to do things like this on the fly in nt/linux but only you know the level and requirements you need to use this connection. (At least the issues with windows shell password lengths have been fixed since SP1.)
