I have to open a unc path very often. Its address is too long, which i have to type in the command line. I was just thinking of some way i could create a shortcut for this.

Right click your desktop and select "new" then "shortcut", type in the full UNC path:

One way is mapping network drive: there is an option in Computer window. Your \\too\long\unc\path\that\you\open\very\often\ can become just V:\often\.
