    I'm not sure what you are talking about but if you want to create a desktop icon
    to manage wireless networks one method is this:
    Create a new folder and rename it to:

    Wireless.{1fa9085f-25a2-489b-85d4-86326eedcd87}

    I double click on the newly renamed folder, but nothing happens...

    Ok. Sorry I can't help any further as I don't have a wireless network.
    When I double-click the folder from the Desktop the screen goes a dark blue for a couple of seconds, like it was switching back to Metro, and then the Desktop re-appears.

    this does not exist in build 8400+ anymore. You need to use the settings charm and click networks.
