Create Shortcuts on Start Menu to start and stop wireless zero configuration?

I would like to place two shortcuts on my Start Menu in Windows XP.  One of these shortcuts would start Windows Zero Configuration (wireless networking), and the other would stop it.

The two commands, if given from the command line, would be:

net start wzcsvc
and
net stop wzcsvc

Can I create shortcuts to do these directly, without going through the mess of creating batch files for the shortcuts to point to?  If so, how?

Thanks!

No. To my mind you can't. Batch file method is the only one you could go with.

noxcho is right.  But you alreday have the commands, so all you would need is the one line in the batch script.  It'd be no different really than having the shortcuts ont he desktop.
