In Windows XP (and earlier) it was relatively quick and easy to access the "Network Connections" folder from the Start menu. In Windows Vista I've seen users click on Start Orb -> Network -> Network and Sharing Center -> Manage Netwok Connections.

But there is a faster way - a short cut to get directly to the Network Connections virtual folder.

Start -> Run -> ncpa.cpl

takes you straight to the Network Connections virtual folder. You can create your own shortcut to ncpa.cpl and add it to your Start Menu for two-click access to this folder if you want.
