You can easily create a desktop shortcut to the 'Network and Sharing Center' from Control Panel. Right-click the Control Panel item and choose Create shortcut. It is possible too to have the Network icon in your system tray. Use the Taskbar Customize button to add Network to Taskbar. Show icons and notifications. A single click on the system tray icon will allow you to disconnect from the connection.

Best Wishes,
RȘnce

thanks. not sure that's exactly what i was looking for. i would like a shortcut that when clicked takes me directly to the "Local Area Connection Status" window. that's 1 step beyond the process u described, i think. on that window is the option to disable. the shortcut can later be clicked once, and a small window pops up saying, "Enabling," and that 1 click alone re-connects it. do u know how that is done?

why not a batch file that when clicked, disables or enables the lan connection depending on it's previous state?

Also: why? it could be easier to run a script that simply runs IPCONFIG /RENEW

Open Network and Sharing Center
Click "Change adapter settings"
Right mouse the icon and drag it to the desktop to create the shortcut

Creating a shortcut without - shortcut written after the original name
as the titel declares, is there any patch or something to make Windows 7 shortcuts not rename theirselves to "application.exe - shortcut" but rename theirselves into just "application.exe"? I find it very annoying having to erase " - shortcut" from the name all the time.
