You can save the current connection to a desktop icon on the client computer:
A desktop icon provides an extremely quick and convenient way of connecting to a host computer. Simply double-click the icon to connect. Your preferred VNC Viewer environment for controlling the host computer is automatically recreated.
Note: You may need to associate the desktop icon with the VNC Viewer executable file the first time you double-click an icon connect.
To save the current connection as a desktop icon:
1. Click the Save Connection VNC Viewer toolbar button.
Note: If VNC Address Book is installed on the client computer, you must first disable it. To do this, click the Options VNC Viewer toolbar button to open the Options dialog and, on the Expert tab, set the UseAddrBook parameter to False.
2. If you entered a password in order to connect to VNC Server, you are prompted to save the password. Note that doing so may constitute a security risk, since the password is saved in obfuscated, though not encrypted, form. If you do not save the password, you must enter it each time you connect.
3. Choose a location to save the icon file to (for example, the desktop), and an intuitive name.
