    I'm trying to create a shortcut to Network Connections


    I'm trying to create a shortcut to "Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network Connections". I am not able to. Is there something about going to this folder that is forbidden?" If I have inserted the incorrect path please give me the correct answer.
    I am preparing a lesson and a short cut to the adapters will make it easier.

    I would do the following:

    Right click on the desktop
    Click on new shortcut
    Enter the following in the window: control netconnections
    click next
    Change the control.exe to Network Connections
    Click finish.

    This worked for me on Windows 7 and will probably work on Windows 8 as well. But I'm unable to confirm this untell later this evening. Hope this helps.
