Create A Network & Sharing Center Shortcut


A very useful and beneficial Control Panel app named Network and Sharing Center, allows you to configure just about every networking operation on your computer, such as changing adapter settings, troubleshooting problems, setting up a new network connection and a lot more. Wouldn't It be nice, If you could access this with a double-click of the mouse? Well, In this tutorial, I will show you how to create a Network and Sharing Center shortcut on your PC's desktop.


Before I make a start, here's what I'm referring to. The typical way to access It, Is to navigate to Control Panel > Network and Internet > Network and Sharing Center. It will then execute as per the Image below.


From here and as already mentioned at the beginning of this article, you can perform an array of networking operations, and do the same with configuring settings according to your usability. To simplify Its accessibility, I will demonstrate how to create a Network and Sharing Center shortcut on your computer's desktop. The process Is extremely simple, so without further delay, let's rip Into this tutorial.

Step One:

Firstly, navigate to your PC's desktop, right-click on a blank area and select New > Shortcut as shown below.


Step Two:

Next, In the Type the location of the Item field, enter the following command.
control /name Microsoft.NetworkAndSharingCenter

Then hit Next to move forward.


Step Three:

Now you need to give your shortcut a name. It can be anything you like. For the purpose of this tutorial, I've named mine My Network & Sharing Center. When you've applied yours, click Finish to finalize the process.


Step Four:

I've now navigated to my computer's desktop, and as you can see, the Network and Sharing Center shortcut has been successfully created. Let's make sure It's functional, by double-clicking It.



Last Step:

As expected, the Network and Sharing Center has launched, and I now have all options and settings at my disposal. Perfect!


Final Thoughts:

Although It's not a difficult task accessing the Network and Sharing Center via Control Panel, nothing beats the simplicity via a double-click of the mouse. Moreover, the shortcut Is not dedicated to the desktop per se. You can copy & paste It to just about any directory you like, thus have It readily available at all times.
