Hi, I use a program called Qyickeys which enables me to open programs.  All is well as long as it is a certain document and or program that I can browse and locate however, it will also open run scripts if I instruct it to but don't know how.

Here is what I want to open;
Control Panel/All Control Panel Items/Network and Sharing Center/Local Area Connection.

Whenever I hit my key combination, what I want to see on the screen is the Local Area Connection window.
Can someone help please, thanks

To open the "Network Connections" Window

"control netconnections" is the command.

It does not appear possible to get any closer than that with a "Run" command from what I have experienced and tried.

You can create a shortcut to it - see here http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/12421-local-area-connection-status-create-shortcut.html
and then launch the shortcut.

Alternatively if you want to go direct to the properties of the Local Area Connection -

start > run > ncpa.cpl is the closest you'll get to network connections

I've tried all the other suggestions but none of them open the Local Area Connection Status dialog window.  Does your suggestion do that and if so, how do I implement it.

1) Right-click desktop

2) New -> Shortcut

3) location of the item: ncpa.cpl  
    (If necessary browse to the Windows\system32 folder)
 
4) Name it 'Network Connection'

5) Right-click, select Properties -> Shortcut Key.
    Enter combination like: Ctrl +Shift +N.

 press Ctrl +Shift +N
