Default Shortcut for Settings>VPN

I would like to put a shortcut on my screen that takes me directly to the VPN settings page. I can't figure out how. Using stock TW but I am rooted.

Have you tried xShortcut?

Install xShortcut, run it and select "System Settings", then select "Complete List" and finally select "Settings$VpnSettingsActivity" and then "OK" and Bob's your uncle, you now have a VPN settings shortcut on your home page.

Thanks. That did the trick. Although I had to scroll through that "complete list" about five times before I found "Settings$VpnSettingsActivity"...would be nice if there was some way to sort the list.

I thought there was an easier way to do this without an app...I had made a shortcut to my Bluetooth settings a while back but can't recall how I did it. Although, now that I think about it...that Bluetooth shortcut may be built-in.

xShortcut is not the prettiest or most user friendly app out there, but you can do some fairly cool stuff with it so it's worth knowing about.
