link to network and sharing center


T

Thomas Hoffmann

Hi
Id like to get a link or a direct call to the 'network and sharing center'.
I know Its possible to put a link on the desktop. But to move this link to another place just makes a copy to this desktop link, not to the Network an Sharingcenter itself.
So: is it possible to call this control-Panel-Menupoint directly?
I don't mean the ncpa.cpl, I mean the window, you get rightclickin the network icon on desktop an choosing 'properties'
Thanks

Is this what you want?
Create a new folder on your Desktop and name it:

Net.{8E908FC9-BECC-40f6-915B-F4CA0E70D03D}

Thank you Dave
first: That is what I want, but:
I only works on the desktop.
When I try to move this link to any dock, the link changes to the link produced on the destkop
(C:\Users\MyName\Desktop\Net.{8E908FC9-BECC-40f6-915B-F4CA0E70D03D})
and when I remove the desktop-Link, the moved link fails.
A link created in the dock an named Net.{8E908FC9-BECC-40f6-915B-F4CA0E70D03D} does not work either.
I'd like to get a call for this window that works even in other surrounding than desktop.

I'm sorry but I don't understand what you are trying to do.
What or where is this 'any dock' that you want to access the
Network and Sharing Center from ?

You can drag the net. folder onto the Start orb and pin it to
the Start Menu, if that's any better for you.

Thanks Dave,
You are right, its possible to drag the link to Start menu.
As win7 has no longer additional menu bars, Im using a free dock, Object dock (http://www.stardock.com/products/objectdock/)
There I want to drag the link to but this does not work.
I could as as well: How to call this window in a batch?
The command for a batch would work in the dock-menubar as well, I'm sure for that.

Well move the net. folder to somewhere where it can stay permanently
and then drag it onto the ObjectDock taskbar to create a link.
Try this:
Move the Net.{8E908FC9-BECC-40f6-915B-F4CA0E70D03D} folder to the root C:\
Then in Explorer navigate to C:\ and drag the Net. folder icon onto
the ObjectDock taskbar until you see the new link and shortcut arrow.
The Net. folder icon should now be on the ObjectDock taskbar and work correctly.
I've just tried it and it works.

First Google hit for "network and sharing center command line" (without
the quotes) yields the following command line:

control.exe /name Microsoft.NetworkAndSharingCenter

It does not appear that it is case-sensitive in my brief testing.

Hope this helps.

Thanks Zaphod, it really works!
As my language is not english, it didn't occur to me to use this phrase in my google-search
Thanks again!
