How do you access Network Connections without using the Control Panel?

I only know the following ways:

  • Run ncpa.cpl from the command line.
  • Right-click on your network icon in the System Tray, and select Open Network Connections

Like everything in Windows, there's about 5 ways to do it:

My way: Start, right-click on My Network Places, Properties.

Others found in this thread and elsewhere:

  • Desktop shortcuts to individual connections
  • Sidebar navigation for My Network Places
  • Right click the Start button; Explore, select network
  • Winkey+E; left->down->right
    • Winkey+E; left->down->asterisk (fully expands every share on the network - not recommended)
  • [this space intentionally left blank]
