Network Connections is a collection of hardware and settings that deals with the procedures by which a computer connects to the Internet, a local area network, or to a wireless device. When the Network adapter is installed in the computer, Windows Operating system establishes a connection for it in the Network Connections folder. Then a Local Area Connections is established for the Ethernet Network Adapter whereas a Wireless Network Adapter is used for Wireless Networks.

The Network Connections Shortcut folder contains all the information about the Network Connections. So if you create the shortcut you can easily access a particular connection and view its status like connection duration, speed, data transfer rate and others. By default the Network Connection Icon is like the Shortcut Icon but depending on the connection used, the Icon changes its appearance.
