Windows 7: Shortcut for connecting to a user's share

Shortcut for connecting to a user's share

I connect to my users computers via \\COMPUTERNAME\c$ all the time.

However there's one particular computer I connect to multiple times a day, is there a way to create a shortcut or .bat file that will execute that command?

Thank you.

Create a batch file that has this in it.

net use z: \\COMPUTERNAME\c$

Put a link to the batch file on your Desktop.
