    Shortcut to dial-up connection (Windows Vista Business)

    I'm new to Vista.
    Simple question: How do I make a 'quick shortcuts' shortcut to a dial-up network connection?
    Under WinXP & Win2K it was easy; drag the connection to the quick launch section of the task bar.
    Now I have no idea. I have to Start, Connect To, Choose the connection, click connect.
    Any hints appreciated.

    Have you tried right-clicking on the link/item and choosing, "Add to Quick Launch"?

    Right click just gives Connect or Properties; no 'Add to Quick Launch Bar' or the like. There's also no 'Pin to Start Menu' or similar.
    I know it's a bit archaic using Dial-up, but that's what I am stuck with here at the moment.
    It's just that it used to be a single click, now it's 5!!!!!

    ...too right! As one who is not at all sold on wireless, it's interesting to see that you're lucky to be able to buy a machine with a built-in modem slot these days.

    The short answer seems to be - AFAICS - that M$ replaced the option you're looking for with all that public/private network stuff.
