How do you add a dialup shortcut icon in Win7 HP

When you setup a dialup connection in XP, it asks if you want to add a shortcut icon to the desktop. Don't see that in Windows 7. Anyone know how to do this? Thanks.

Hello Jacatone,

If you like, you could use the tutorial below to create a "Network Connections" shortcut that you could use or pin where you like.

Network Connections - Create Shortcut

If you would prefer to have one for one of the network connections in the folder this shortcut opens instead, then you could right click on it and click on "Create shortcut" for one on the desktop.

Hope this helps,
