Quickly Open Network Connections List in Windows 7 or Vista

 

One of the biggest annoyances for me in Windows 7 or Vista is that you can’t immediately open the Network Connections list to see the list of adapters like you could in XP.

In Windows XP, you could right-click any network connection and select “Open Network Connections”, but in Windows Vista, the only option you have is to open the Network and Sharing Center via the same right-click menu.

To immediately open the connection list, you can just type ncpa.cpl into the Start menu search box:

And up pops the network connection list just like I’m used to:

You can also create a shortcut somewhere to the full file path if you want even easier access.

Just use C:\windows\system32\ncpa.cpl as the location of the shortcut.

Note that we’ve also tested this on Windows 7 as well.
