Windows 10 VPN shortcut


Here is a quick way to launch a VPN connection in Windows 10.

Create a folder somewhere tidy then create a batch file for each connection as follows:

@echo off
rasdial "My VPN connection name here"
Give it a nice Icon, and then once you have compiled all of the VPN connections add the folder to your task bar for a nice pop up list of all your VPNs!
