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 Windows 7 VPN account I never saw an option for the shortcut. I've tried a lot of right clicking but nothing worked.
