Create shortcut to connect specific access point with WifiInfoView

The new version of WifiInfoView (2.60) allows you to easily create a shortcut on your desktop to connect the desired wireless access point. You can create 2 types of shortcuts: ‘Connect Access Point By BSSID’ and ‘Connect Access Point By Name’.
If you have multiple access points with the same name (Wifi Extenders) and you want to create a shortcut to connect only a specific access point, you should create the ‘Connect Access Point By BSSID’ shortcut. Otherwise, you should use the ‘Connect Access Point By Name’ shortcut.

In order to create the desired shortcut, simply select your access point in WifiInfoView , right-click with the mouse and then from the ‘Create Desktop Shortcut’ submenu choose the shortcut you want to create:

WifiInfoView will ask you if you want to create the shortcut, choose ‘Yes’ to create it:

After choosing ‘Yes’, you should see on your desktop the new shortcut to connect your wifi access point:

Optionally, you can right-click on the shortcut, choose ‘Properties’ and then in the ‘Shortcut Key’ field – type the key combination to activate the shortcut.

    Hi Nir,

    Like WinInfoView. Very useful to choose channels and optimize home network.
    Do you plan to add support of 11ax (Wi-Fi 6)? Version 2.50 still shows it as 11ac (Wi-Fi 5).
