Windows 7: VPN shortcut?

VPN shortcut?

I have a VPN account setup on my home computer to access our office server. It works fine but I'd like to put a short cut on my desktop rather than go through the Network menus. When I was using XP the desktop shortcut was a feature the Wizard asked me about. While setting up the W7 VPN account I never saw an option for the shortcut. I've tried a lot of right clicking but nothing worked.

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.
