Make shortcut to a network adapter properties

Recommended Posts

If you frequently check or change the properties of your network adapters (for example, if you have multiple adapters and you disable and enable different ones regularly, or if you need to change your DNS servers or other TCP/IP settings for your NIC), you probably get a bit weary of all the clicks required to get to the adapter's Properties sheet: Start | Control Panel | Network and Sharing Center | Change Adapter Settings. You can save a few clicks by creating a shortcut.


The obvious way to do that would be to drag the icon of your network adapter(s) to your desktop ? but that shortcut won't have the Properties sheet for the adapter when you right-click it (you'll get the Properties of the shortcut link instead). Here's a better way:

  • Right-click on empty space on the desktop.
  • Click New | Shortcut.
  • In the location field, type explorer.exe ::{7007ACC7-3202-11D1-AAD2-00805FC1270E} and be sure to put a space after "explorer.exe."
  • Name it "Network Connection" or whatever else you want to identity it.
  • Click Finish.


Thanks to,
