Vista VPN and the Start Menu

Hello all. Just installed Vista and have a quick question. In XP, I
used to be able to put a little thing on the start menu that said
"Connect To" and would show the various connections that were
available (especially my VPN connection). Now, with Vista, I have a
"Connect To" but can't get a list of connections. I have to click on
the Connect To link, then choose my VPN connection, and then choose
Connect (like 3 extra steps). Anybody know how to get my Connect To
with links back onto the Start Menu?

Thanks
Mike Smith

Might be wrong, but I don't think you can. If you open the 'Network &
Sharing Center', then click the link to 'Manage network connections', you
can drag a connection icon to the quick launch bar, where one click on the
icon will initiate connecting.

Good Luck,
