How do I add the Dial Up Networking to the Start Menu?

A. Create a New folder under the start menu you wish to have it on (administrator, All users or your specific profile), for example 'c:\winnt\Profiles\savillj\Start Menu' Name the New folder:

Dial Up Net.\{992CffA0-F557-101A-88EC-00DD010CCC48\}

Complete with the period, brackets and dashes. Once entered it will automatically be renamed to 'Dial Up Net' and unlike the Settings Dial Up Networking it will be cascading meaning all dial up connections will be shown as sub-objects.

If you have a problem, try pressing F5 to refresh the screen, or log off and on again.
