Two weekends ago, Saturday morning, at the kitchen table... God&*()n f^$#$ HP Pavilion laptop! First, I can't get the VPN to work. They changed the VPN settings to some super crypto-lock NSA CCCP USSR FBI CIA protocol that requires pre-shared key and all. I couldn't get it to work. And by the way the reason I'm messing with the laptop on the table is because, even though it is a laptop and I'd rather have it on the couch in my actual lap, the thing runs so hot it burns a hole in my leg plus then it overheats and shuts down. And by the way it did that just sitting on a wooden table as well, and it was cold in the house plus I have to take it to a hot place in about two weeks.... Monday morning... IT: "Take a deep breath." Me: "$&%#$!" IT: "I'll take it home and try to get it to work over the weekend." Me: "$&%#$!" IT: "You know what, let's just get a new one." Me: "Okay." Fast forward to today... I was reluctantly crouched at the starting line, Engine pumping and thumping in time, and; Wait. No, I was actually just hoping the IT guy would have the new Lenovo Yoga laptop setup with VPN, Office and the junk I need before the end of the day. Then he plunked it down on my desk. It is hella sweet. It took me thirty minutes to figure out where the button was to turn it on, but after that, it ran faster than a rabbit with a bottle rocket shoved in it's arse. All was good, except.... Where is the VPN icon? Well guess what. I did find the VPN setup, and in Windows 7, or 6, or 5 or whatever came before I would have just right clicked or dragged it onto the desktop and wah-lah, there it is. But guess what. No amount of clicking, right clicking, or dragging could make it or something with its functionality populate the desktop or the task bar. So I searched the MS database. No, actually I Googled and found out that I could create a shortcut by right clicking on the desktop and either browsing for the item (not an apparent option for the VPN connection) or by typing in some long path string out of a list of items, which would take me to the VPN setting page, but not to the connection itself. WTF. I mean I can live with it, but is there a way to create a link on your desktop in Windows 10 that you just click on and the VPN connects? Like before?
