Windows 10: How2 quickly turn on a Dial-up Broadband Connection?
How2 quickly turn on a Dial-up Broadband Connection?
Here and elsewhere I found how to create a Dial-up, broadband connection (sorry still using this old stuff seeing that I am at a university in China) shortcut placed on the desktop. B4 the shortcut I had to:
-1- click on the R-side of the task bar icon
-2- Click on the broadband strip on top
-3- Click on the connection
-4- click on Connect
Creating a shortcut from there (Settings -> Network & Internet -> DIal-up) onto the desktop actually creates an extra step since it defaults to VPN instead--and even if it didn't it would still be 4 steps.
Is this any way to make this a 1 or 2-step process?
I'm not familiar with making them but perhaps someone can make you a bat file to do those steps for you every time you open it.
AH yeah, a bat file. I remember reading of such a while back but I have a funny feeling it may be simpler with W10 nevertheless I'll look into it. thanks
SO far no luck with the bat file or anything else (mind u haven't really had the time to do a proper search)
