Create Network and Sharing Center Shortcut in Windows 7

In windows 7, it can be troublesome getting a Network and Sharing Center Shortcut for the desktop, which in my case is something i wanted for an SOE i was building. after some research i came across the following sollution:

1. go to the desktop, right click and select create new shortcut
2. In the create shortcut text box paste the following text:
C:\Windows\explorer.exe shell:::{8E908FC9-BECC-40f6-915B-F4CA0E70D03D}

3. Choose Next and then type in a name for the shortcut. I normally just use Network and Sharing Center as that’s what your creating a shortcut for in the first place!
4. Choose Finish and you’re done! from here if you wanted you could go and chance the icon and name from within the properties for the shortcut.
